Worked in corrections for a year. But my experience is different I worked in an infirmary. There seems to be a lot of bad nurses there but some of us just did not have any experience and jobs are hard to come by in this economy. It gave me an experience but began to hate how some of the nurses treated them as subhuman. Just could not take it anymore after a year and I put my two weeks notice in after landing another job. Sad that it was not a hospital gig but I was too burned out to stay any longer.

update, my tour of the california prison is scheduled for next week. i'm looking forward to it because i should come out of there knowing if this type of job is for me. a nurse is providing the tour. you have to fill out a clearance form and are cleared in order to take a tour. contact the pio and they will e-mail it to you and you can either scan and send it back or mail it in. i'll update my thoughts after the tour.
