    Hi Diana,

    I came upon your interview while trying to research for more info about forensic nursing, but however the answers to your interview were not posted. I'm very interested in seeing what the person you interviewed had to say. I'm currently an undecided student trying to finish up some pre-reqs to apply to a few nursing programs I have in mind. I know there are many different fields in nursing and wanted to narrow it down some by looking into forensic nursing which is at the top of my list. Any info you can share on the subject would be very helpful. Thank you!

    I'm writing a paper for my Career and Personal Development class and we have to interview someone in our field of interest. Could I possibly see what KC4NSICRN said? Other nurses aren't answering my emails and it's really close to my due date.

    That would help me out a lot. I don't need place of employment because we're writing a reflection on the interview so I will not be turning in the actual interview. Could you also answer:

    Are there tangible goals to work for? Will I see concrete results when the job is done?

    Are there clear lines of responsibility?

    How flexible is this position? How structured is the environment?

    Are the hours regular and the duties consistent?
