Hi, I think I might be able to help you out. First off Forensic nursing is called just that, Forensic nursing. There are no Forensic LPNs, they are interested in your nursing knowledge not whether you are an LPN or RN. The only time that comes into play is when applying for further education. So with that being said you might want to look at your local police station, public health department, emergency room, correctional facility or the coroners office, these are places where Forensic nurses work. You probably will not see these jobs posted online or in the newspaper so the best thing to do is call these places and ask if they have a Forensic nurse on staff and ask if you could speak with her or him.
Do what is called an"information interview" Tell them you are interested in this type of nursing and wanted to learn more about their job and what you would need to do to get a job like this.
Here's a list of what a Forensic nurses title might be:
Forensic Clinical Nurse Expert
Correctional Nursing Expert
Forensic Gerontology Specialist
Forensic Legal Adviser or Consultant
Forensic Psychiatric Nurse
Sexual Assault Examiner
There is an association called the International association of Forensic Nurses at International Association of Forensic Nurses
that you might want to check out, great information there, they will also be able to answer your questions and help you find something in your area.
Hope this helps.
