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.
About Us: Southern Health Partners began providing correctional
medical services in 1994. Since our inception it has been our goal
to provide the best possible care to our patients, through the
exceptional care our dedicated nurse staff. SHP Nurses proudly
display their integrity through: Respect for patient dignity and
confidentiality. Accountability for knowledge, understanding and
continuing personal education. Supporting teammates. Honoring
commitments. Doing the right thing consistently, day in and day
out, in task and relationship interactions.
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.
