I have been considering this specialty for some time, but the seemingly lack of job opportunities is holding me back. I do not want to be a SANE. I have so much respect and admiration for those of you who are, but I couldn't do it. I do not think I have the ability to be there for my patients, not emotionally anyways. I am interested in the evidence collection, possible coroner, crime scene aspect.
I have read a lot of posts here and online at other places about SANEs, but are there any non-SANE forensic nurses here? I was looking into a few programs, but a lot of them seem to be heavily SANE based. Anyone have any recommendations for programs?
Anyone here taken the courses through Fitchburg State?
Anyone have their Masters in Forensics? Where did you go to school?
I hear a lot about internships/externships with their local crime lab/ME/coroner... how in the world did you find thos opportunities!? lol I have looked online and haven't found a thing! I don't have any connections, so any tips would be great. I'm willing to relocate as well. Just trying to get some info about this, thanks so much!!!
