systems are charged with managing human resources, developing and implementing agency policy and procedure, engaging with internal and external stakeholders, and administering significant fiscal resources – all while supporting strong business practices and delivering results.

As such, it is imperative for Healthcare Administrators to stay current regarding critical issues facing the field and methods for effectively addressing areas of need.

It is critically important for them to keep abreast of correctional best practices and emerging issues, as well as developing and maintaining a strong peer network of other correctional healthcare administrators.

Further, other Healthcare Administrators of Corrections provide vital assistance in gathering information, sharing perspectives, and providing possible solutions to their peers.

NIC has been committed for years to improving healthcare administrator’s performance by providing excellent leadership and management as well as additional training for healthcare professionals.

In an effort to expand on the resources, NIC has provided the field with the documents such as Effective Prison Mental Health Services:
Guidelines to Expand and Improve Treatment , Adults with Behavioral Health Needs Under Correctional Supervision, Health Literacy:
Enhancing Access to Health Care for Justice-Involved Individuals and Correctional Leadership Competencies for the 21st Century, a portion of which specifically addresses the role of Correctional Executive’s and Senior Level Leaders.

The next step is to create a blended training curriculum for this important role in corrections.
