Hi, I am a new grad RN interested in eventually getting into forensic nursing. What kind of nursing background is useful when entering this field? I have a part-time job in psych and I am looking for another psych job. But maybe ER or Med/Surg might be a better way to go. ANY SUGGESTIONS?
Hello, lsvalliant and Welcome to the Forensic Nursing forum
I always advise the ED if one is interested in entering forensics. I think psych jobs can also be a good place to gather some experience, but bear in mind this is not the "portal of entry", so to speak, when dealing with acute presentation regarding forensics.
Also, one can volunteer time with a coroner.
Several things to consider.......
Hopefully others will come along and offer input.
Good luck with your decisions.
