Information and Education Resources

It can be hard to find good books and continuing education in our specialty. Here are some resources I recommend for both professional reading and continuing education. Just for fun, I also added some ideas for recreational reading. By purchasing through these Amazon affiliate links here, you can give back to CorrectionalNurse.net and help keep the light on at this internet outpost for our specialty.



Professional Reading

Correctional Nursing Continuing Education

Pedagogy Correctional Health Care Campus

I am a bit biased on this source since I develop the correctional healthcare specific continuing education here. The module specific to corrections are in video format and have application checkpoints to hold your attention. Here are the ones available so far with more on the way:

The Correctional Health Care Patient and Environment

Correctional Health Care Processes

Safety in the Correctional Setting

Medication Administration in the Correctional Setting

Risk and Documentation in the Correctional Setting

Special Issues in Corrections

Correctional Health Nursing CE at Nurse.com

OK, I am really showing my biases, but nurse.com has tons of fantastic text courses. I co-wrote or revised these corrections-specific modules:

Chronic Illness in the Correctional Setting

Control and Management of Infectious Diseases in the Correctional Setting

Legal Origins and Issues Behind Correctional Nursing

Psychiatric Nursing in the Correctional Setting

Women in Prison

Journal of Correctional Health Care (JCHC) Self-Study Program

If you are a member of the Academy of Correctional Health Professionals you have a subscription to JCHC. Dig out your back issues and get reading. You can submit for nursing CE online using these step-by-step directions and obtain your CE certificates immediately.

Correctional Nurse Educator

Our friends over at Correctional Nurse Educator have some fantastic courses available, as well. Topics include Asthma, Chronic Care, Inmate Manipulation, Suicide Prevention, and much more. All are focused on correctional nursing practice.
