Correctional healthcare is an important but often overlooked part of healthcare delivery. Supplemental Health Care’s Corrections division specializes in connecting caring healthcare professionals with the correctional facilities that need them.
These positions offer flexible schedules, national travel options, and more consistent opportunities throughout the year than many other settings. SHC corrections nurses report that patients in these facilities are among the most thankful and that correctional healthcare offers the chance to practice a wider range of care. It's not uncommon that nurses relearn or refresh skills that they didn't use regularly in another setting.
On top of all of that, these are among the most stable jobs in healthcare. Correctional facilities often renew travelers and contract workers at higher rates than other settings, so you often have the option of multiple assignments at your favorite facilities.
If the benefits of correctional healthcare sound interesting to you, the SHC Corrections division would love to help connect you to the perfect opportunity.
“This is my first time working in corrections, and I’ve been here for a year now. At first, I wasn’t sure if it would work for me, but since it was a scheduled thirteen-week assignment, I thought, why not.” I strive to teach them about their medications, and just being there for them when they are sick or hurt. I know that they are there for a reason, and it is not for me to know the reasons or to judge. My job is to care for them and their health, to the best of my ability.”
