    Most schools offering forensic courses require RN as a pre-requisite. Check Kaplan and others on this site. If you are referring to SAFE or SANE forensics, it would be imperative that you have a background in OB/GYN and at the minimum a BSN, preferably MSN. As a SAFE or SANE Nurse you would be involved in testifying for the prosecution in rape cases based upon evidence that you had obtained. The defendant's attorney will use all means at his/her disposal to discredit you, raising questions about your education and experience.

    I don't know if this will help any, but here in Ontario,Canada they are offering Forensic Nursing courses for LPN's. I think at Humber College in Toronto?

    Hi Roozeyk,
    I just finished my classes through Kaplan, and the prereq was to be a RN. It is something great to look into, I loved it.
