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 RN who is ready to join our dedicated team of medical professionals, our current schedule needs are for:
 
3-12 hr Nights Shifts
with Rotating Weekends
 
to Work in the Kenton County Detention Center
