    Hi, nursek05,

    I am self-employed as a medical- legal nurse consultant. Incorporated this year. Doing the externship prepared me for the type of cases normally for my criminal litigations. I was able to see first hand just how forensic medicine is utilized. Rape cases, homicides, etc. I honestly can say I know what to expect and know what should be done prior to being transported to the morgue. It was most informative. I would like to do more work with the local examiner sometimes, but, right now.....zero time.

    Following a chain of command in some of these cases ..... you can find where "links" were broken.

    I see. Well, I have not noticed a specification for either gender in the field. I don't think it makes any difference whatsoever.

    It is a most interesting field, that's for certain. You will enjoy it, I think, shaider.

    Hi my name is Mario and I am in my last semester of nursing school (getting my BSN)... I am very interested in Forensic Nursing and have been in the process of trying to become one since high school... Recently, and actually today, I have been talking to different agencies and individuals regarding the field, and I am getting a little discouraged by some my research.

    1) There appears to be no concrete way to actually become a Forensic Nurse... despite some of the few school who offer Masters of Nursing with a Forensic Nurse emphasis... I have found that the programs require SANE experience or license...

    2) Some people have told me to get a Master while other contradict getting a Masters unless I waant to be an Advanced practioner (they feel the masters isnt necessary)

    3)The last problem I have been running into, but is completely understandable, is my ability to work after going through all this training... I have been told by friends, social workers, and even some practicing nurses that a lot of victims female and male who have been sexually assault do not want to be examined by a male nurse and/or physician...

    I would like to know what you all think about it...
