Break out of your current routine and find your nursing freedom behind bars. When you sought a nursing career to make a difference in the lives of your patients and their families, you may never have imagined the most diverse patient population would be found in a correctional setting. While working in an Emergency Room you may have found security lacking at times and patient concerns may not be as emergent as the facility name would imply. Evidence based nursing decisions making an impact for an under-served patient population in a safe secure work environment may be just the career change you are looking for.
If you are the dynamic nurse who is ready to join our dedicated team of medical professionals, our current schedule needs are for:
Location: Whitley County Detention Center
Open Position: FT LPN
Schedule: 3/4 12 hr Day Shift Rotation; EVO Weekend

Growth: New to corrections? We want you to find your new home with the SHP Family and to see you grow and develop your skills for many years to come. CEU's can be very expensive and time consuming. Working for SHP eliminates this expense for all our nurses ensuring new topics are available each month and you are kept up to date on current healthcare concerns. Interested in continuing your education? SHP partners with multiple groups to provide discounts on college tuition. With a service length requirement, SHP also offers tuition reimbursement. We are always looking for opportunities to have our staff grow with us and remain a part of the SHP Family. Promotion from within and mentoring for excellence is something we are proud to offer.
Qualifications: We are looking for a responsible licensed care giver to utilize their nursing skills for a diverse patient group. You will deliver patient care, review data collection, establish nursing plans and work under the boundaries of State Scope of Practice and Guidelines, and Physician/Provider(s). Outside service referrals, following established treatment plans, and working with the Providers will be a key part of your position as well. Monitoring patient progress and working with the Providers will round out a quality health care program performed on-site - one you can be proud to be a part of. You should have competence in performing emergency intervention, physical assessment, critical thinking, and documentation skills.
