Nursing Careers

Thank you for your interest in our employment opportunities with California Correctional Health Care Services. We are seeking exceptional nursing professionals dedicated and ready to improve quality access to health care.

We’re also improving the care of our nurses. Salaries have increased; and you won’t be making federal social security payments, so you’ll keep more of that salary. Plus, as a California State Employee, you’ll enjoy one of the best benefits and retirement programs anywhere.

We have provided links (below) to help you start your search. Please read the Bulletin, and if qualified, click the link under “Test Instrument.” If you complete an online self-assessment, you will receive a score immediately upon completion. If your test instrument is a State Application or a State Application and Supplemental Application, then you will receive your score approximately three weeks after our Examination Staff receives your paperwork.

If your score is successful, you will be placed onto a Certification List of eligible candidates. After receiving a score for the Certification List, you are welcome to apply to the vacancies in that classification that interest you. Please follow the “How To Apply” instructions on the job posting and submit your application. Only the most competitive candidates will be considered for an interview. Should you be chosen, you will be contacted by the Personnel Office.

“I found that I was safer here than in an Emergency Room in the private sector.”

— RN, 20 years experience; 17 years with State Prison
