Correctional Nursing is the practice and delivery of patient care within the unique and distinctive environment of the criminal justice system.

Nurses have been described as the backbone of correctional health care. They are the eyes, ears, hands, heads and hearts that respond to medical and mental health emergencies. During daily nursing clinics and other routine encounters, correctional nurses listen to patients' concerns and watchfully encourage other individuals who are unable or unwilling to raise a health concern.

Nurses must apply their knowledge, skill and ability to the assessment and diagnosis of the full range of health conditions presented by this population and determine both the urgency and priority of subsequent care.
