Every Nurse is a Forensic Nurse

Forensic nursing combines the forensic aspects of health care with scientific investigation and treatment of victims and perpetrators of abuse, violence, criminal activity, and accidents. The forensic nurse provides direct services to individual clients; consultation services to nursing, medical, and law-related agencies; and expert court testimony regarding trauma and/or questioned death investigative processes. The forensic nurse also testifies on the adequacy of services and gives specialized diagnoses of special conditions as they related to nursing" (IAFN, 2000).
