465 Creating Successful Correctional Nurses Through Specialized Education

Correctional nursing requires a diverse skill set, including medical-surgical, emergency, critical care, and mental health care. These topics are often not well taught in nursing school or traditional medical settings. In this presentation, we will evaluate the nurse's ability to provide care for a variety of needs and develop a lesson plan to address areas where there are deficiencies. Creating education and routine follow up on nursing skills is essential to maintaining staff and improving patient care.
