As a Licensed Practical Nurse in a correctional care setting, you’ll play a crucial role in providing comprehensive healthcare services to incarcerated individuals, promoting their well-being and rehabilitation. This position works in partnership with a team of correctional staff and allows you to make a meaningful difference in the lives of patients. Responsibilities include:

  • Provide basic nursing care to patients under the supervision on RNs or physicians.
  • Monitoring patients vitals and symptoms—administering medication and treatments according to physician orders and established protocols
  • Administer medications and injections as prescribed by a physician and monitor for adverse reactions to medications
  • Responding to medical emergencies and providing immediate interventions as needed
  • Documenting all patient interactions, treatments, and observations accurately and timely
  • Educating patients on self-care techniques and promoting health education within the correctional facility

Correctional care positions can often offer healthcare professionals more independence in how they practice and the ability to grow professionally. AMS works with every provider and facility to ensure their placement is a right fit—and that your questions around the work day, the onsite team, and security are answered well in advance of your start date.
