It depends on the facility. I started as a new grad.

Some agencies hire new grads, some don't (mine doesn't). Make sure your assessment skills are polished, because inmates will exaggerate and fake symptoms in order to get a trip to the hospital, or to get medication out of you either for themselves or for someone else.

Well honestly, if you have no experience then they focus on your willingness to learn. And if you do have experience, psychiatric nursing is a plus as well as any form of acute care nursing.
