What type of person is a good candidate for a Correctional Healthcare position?

Healthcare providers are critical in the continuum of care for people who are incarcerated. While procedures can vary from facility to facility, nurses, for example, are typically the first point of contact. Correctional nurses perform intake exams, distribute daily medications and assess when a patient may need to see a specialist for further observation.

Given the responsibilities of a correctional healthcare provider, paired with the range of health issues that are encountered, it's important to have a broad skill set that includes dealing with chronic medical conditions, substance abuse, mental health, infectious disease and injuries. Having experience in an emergency room setting, for example, may help a provider more easily transition to working in a correctional setting.

As for specialized training, there is no universal standard for experience or certifications for providers in order to be hired to work in a correctional facility. Most facilities instead institute on-the-job training to prepare their health care staff. Healthcare providers do have the option of earning certifications from the National Commission on Correctional Health Care to build their specialized skills.

What is the workplace like?

While the mission of a correctional healthcare provider is the same as any licensed professional - to provide the best possible care for every patient - working in a correctional facility has some distinct differences from traditional health care settings.

Correctional facility protocols are, in a word, strict. The presence of a deputy or corrections officer is required in the Health Services department. Most correctional healthcare providers will voice that working in a correctional facility often feels safer than in a hospital. Safety and security are top priorities for correctional facilities.
