Which online forensic nsg is better?

  1. 0
    Just wondering which online forensic nursing certificate is better? I've looked at Kaplan & California online. It appears California has more courses than Kaplan but both can take a year to complete. When looking for a job after, does a Forensic Nursing Certificate look better from obtaining it from one school over the other? Which one is better? Are there other good online forensic nsg certificates available?

    hello, albrn,

    i have no online program that i recommend over another one. i do know many do the combined forensics/sane, however. a great need for that type of education.

    here is a link to the sexual assault nurse examiner sexual response team linking other educational programs:

    as for receiving education from one school over another that would lend to credibility? i doubt it.

    receiving the added education and certification lends credence to the assertion the individual has the added knowledge and critical-thinking skills to do the job.

    and, here is a link to an article from the american college of forensic examiners institute of forensic science (acfei). this explains the different avenues of education as well as the role of the forensic nurse:

    good luck with this most intriguing career choice.
