I commend you for wanting to work in what has got to be a fascinating place. I think the suggestions for where to look are great. Also, forensic nursing in the UK is different than in the US, at least for the mentally ill and criminally insane. I would encourage you to take a loo at the International Association of Forensic Nurses web site (www.iafn.org
) and to search for this topic. That's how I got started in pursuing a career in forensic nursing.
I would like to read more about your motivation for such a challenging undertaking and to know where you are in your nursing career.
When I tell someone I am a forensic nurse, first they think I just work with dead people. Then when I tell them about Living Forensics, they say how can you do that? I am very passionate about my work and career. And I think it shows when I speak about it. I'm lucky enough and so honored to be asked to speak at nursing conferences.
Good Luck! We all must be agents for change.
