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):

i would really hate to have to close this thread. it serves to assist others and as professionals, we should continue to do so without personal attacks.
IMHO you should have had malpractice insurance the second you received your RN license....get it ASAP.
