    And, I knew I still wanted to be a nurse after doing this for almost 4 years:



    Front:








    Back:








    Earned after 200 hours of volunteer work. I received a stripe on the cap after 250 hours. I was so proud of this accomplishment and it was the beginning of a life-long career in nursing later.

    Thanks, traumaRUs. I've never had the opportunity to work with a CNS and would love to follow you as well. Not only are you very intelligent, you are amazingly energetic and see so many patients in a day's time. And, agree with you about JulesA, Juan de la cruz and BostonFNP.

    I find wtbcrna, a CRNA, to be a wealth of knowledge and would enjoy picking his brain.

    zenman, a PMHNP, is very talented with a sharp wit. Psych is definitely not my forte and I think he could teach me so much in a short period time. And, a very polite and down-to-earth poster is core0. I really enjoy reading his valuable input regarding the PA. I am certain we do much of the same type of work and would love to shadow him.

    Like traumaRUs, there are others I, too, find interesting and I think I know that how they conduct themselves at AN are how they are in real life. I could learn so much just listening to them ...

    My creds have changed over the years, too. Long before this. I just go with the flow and as traumaRUs pointed out, learn to live with it. It does not de-value my creds/profession.

    Please note some posts have been removed as they do not really help the OP.

    If a member(s) wants to discuss other non-nursing aspects of anesthesia (education, training, etc.), please start a new thread.

    Thanks.

    This thread is to help educate those interested in becoming a Forensic Nurse as well as help define the role of the forensic nurse.

    There are programs that prepare the RN as a masters prepared forensic specialist. There are programs for the CNS forensic specialist as well as post-masters for other APRNs. And, there are programs for the LPN and paramedic.

    But, most are post RN certificate programs.

    When considering a Forensic Nursing program one should note if they adhere to standards set forth by the International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Note if they are accredited approvers by the individual Boards of Nursing and the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation. Also, Forensic Nursing post-graduate programs should be endorsed by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

    Here are few links to help you (not all inclusive Forensic Nursing programs):
