The Department of Correction will hold a job fair this weekend for professionals interested in working in one of four Nashville prisons.
Several RN and LPN positions (full and part-time), are available at the Lois M. DeBerry Special Needs Facility. The facility provides acute and convalescent health care, intensive mental health intervention and other services for offenders.
The department is also hiring correctional officers and food stewards at the Riverbend Maximum Security Institution, Tennessee Prison for Women, Charles Bass Correctional Complex and the Special Needs Facility.
“Correctional nurses make a difference by changing undesirable health trends that save taxpayer dollars,” said Commissioner Derrick D. Schofield. “We are committed to offering a standard quality of care to those we supervise. Correctional officers and food stewards are crucial in our mission of operating safe and secure prisons.
The TDOC Job Fair will take place Saturday from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. and Sunday from 1-4 p.m. at the Lois M. DeBerry Special Needs Facility, located at 7575 Cockrill Bend Blvd. in Nashville.
