Correctional Healthcare nursing is a challenging field which is part of a correctional healthcare delivery system which aspires to address needs of the chronically underserved local community. County Jails are where people are sent when they are first arrested. Most people in county jails have not been convicted of a crime, and a high percentage of the population are underserved, they are poor, disenfranchised, and mentally ill or have a substance use disorder. Many do not belong in jails but are there because presently there are no better alternatives.
