So I just got my RN in february and am currently working on a surgical unit. I have always wanted to be a forensic nurse and have decided i am going to start towards that next spring. I am aware I need ED experience, so I will be applying for the ED internship program at my hospital in the fall to try to get my foot in that way. besides experience, what else should I do? should I just get my BSN and get my forensic certification or is it smarter to get my MSN before my certification? I am not sure how this works as it is a new field. Also, if anyone knows, what does getting the certification involve? Thanks!
