Correctional Healthcare on the NP Business Matters Podcast

Renee Dahring, FNP, on Correctional Healthcare


Have you ever considered working in corrections? As in independent contractor, an employee or as an entrepreneur? I had not.

Welcome back to our guest Renee Dahring, APRN, FNP, FAANP. You may be familiar with Renee, (aka the NP Career Coach) who was featured on episode #14 when we talked about finding the perfect job, which I’ve linked to below.

In addition to her work with NPs on careers, and her work with the Minnesota NP Coalition, she has spent the bulk of her clinical career in corrections both as an employee and as an independent contractor.

We talk about what it’s like, and about all the opportunity there is for NPs in corrections…beyond the clinical work.

In this episode of the NP Business Matters Podcast, not only do we talk about what it’s like for NPs working in corrections, but we also talk about the opportunities for nurse practitioners in corrections from being an employee, an independent contractor, a leader, and an entrepreneur.
