Wednesday, September 09, 2009 | 11:00am

NASHVILLE - The Tennessee Department of Correction is experiencing a critical shortage of nurses at a Nashville state prison.  There are currently 21 vacant RN and LPN positions that must be filled at the Lois M. DeBerry Special Needs Facility in Nashville.  Several part-time positions will be filled as well.

This weekend, the TDOC will hold a job fair for interested nurse applicants to learn more about the benefits of working in a correctional facility and for the State of Tennessee.  The job fair will include a tour of the facility and information on compensation, educational benefits and flex schedules. 

The DeBerry Special Needs Facility provides acute and convalescent health care to offenders who are in TDOC custody.  "The TDOC recognizes that working in a prison environment can be challenging," said Commissioner George M. Little.  "We also want potential applicants to know that the corrections profession is also highly rewarding."
