Correctional Nursing

Where your skills will be used to the fullest

As a nurse in a correctional facility, you can work independently and care for the whole person, using all of your knowledge and skills.

Few nursing specialties offer so much opportunity to make a real difference in people's lives - including your own.

We are looking for nurses that want to seize the opportunity to start or transition into a career as a correctional nurse and join the talented and dedicated team working across Manitoba.




When I applied back in 2013, my manager said, `You will either love it or hate it.' Well, I love it! Empowering inmates to make positive changes is something I find very fulfilling. If you asked my co-workers whether they would recommend the job, I can honestly say that all of them would say YES.
