I am a pre-nursing student, about to finish my pre-reqs, and I should begin my clinical coursework for an ADN program next spring. I am very, very interested in forensics, law, etc. (the other careers I've considered involve forensic science, forensic psych, even computer forensics) and hope to pursue whatever certification/advanced degree I need.
I know there will be a period of time where I just need to work before I can do that, especially because I'll need to get my BSN first for the forensic nursing programs near me. To that end, I have a couple questions:
-What sort of nursing jobs are good experience for getting into forensic nursing? Emergency, women's health, etc.? What others should I be aiming for?
-What are some "days in the life" of forensic nurses? I know there are probably different job titles and duties depending on the employer, the day, and so on. I think death investigation and corrections would probably be the most interesting to me, but I want to hear whatever anyone can tell me about their jobs.
