Educational and clinical path to Forensic Nursing

  1. 0
    Hi all,

    I have recently completed my RN ADN and am currently looking for a job. Now that I finally have some free time I am researching different types of nursing and the ones that interest me the most are public health or forensics. In forensics I am more interested in death investigation and /or working with the medical examiners office. SANE is ok too, but not my first interest. I am also looking into getting back to school and am debating between my BSN or a Forensic Science program, which does not really focus on nursing though.

    Any advise is welcome on the best way to get into this exciting and interesting field.

    Many thanks
