Twelve years ago, the team at Correctional HealthCare Consultants, led by Dr. Lori Roscoe, looked for Continuing Education programs that offered accredited continuing education hours for Correctional Nurses that actually considered the environment in which we operate. We found very few classes that were really pertinent to correctional nursing, although they were advertised as continuing education for the Correctional Nurse.
And so, we decided to start our own program. We achieved Provider status with the California Board of Registered Nursing so that our classes would earn continuing education hours, and began our research. We have found that most Boards of Nursing do accept credits from other states, but feel free to contact us if you have questions. Our classes are also acceptable toward the National Commission on Correctional Health Care CCHP and CCHP-RN continuing certification requirement and the American Correctional Association’s certifications as well.
