Anyone have insight on forensic nursing

  1. I am interested in forensic nursing, does anyone have any experience with that area? Would you mind sharing some information about it and how to pursue this avenue. Oh, and do you think it is a good career choice with opportunities, and is there a demand for forensic nurses?

    I have on occasion taken a body to the morgue which is also the coroner's department for the state.
    The coroner does have an assistant, but he is not a nurse.
    Someone asked the assistant about his job, and he said a person would need good knowledge of anatomy and physiology, and a very strong stomach. Some bodies have been lying in the woods for weeks before being brought in for autopsy.
