- 1Aug 29, '12 by rys22Working towards ADN right now, then get a job and work on my BSN online. I will see how I feel with that but at this point, being a NP is an option but not one I'm focusing on. Simply because, by the time I finish all this, I know I will just want a BREAK to be a mom and the kind of wife my husband deserves where I'm not flying around from work to school and back to work again
Good luck to you all and your dreams!! Keep your eyes on the goal but dont forget to enjoy the "now"

It would be nice to shadow a forensic nurse so I can really see what their day-to-day work day is like.Hahahahahaha, so true! For me it's Criminal Minds and the Stephanie Plum books.
I'll let you know if I find more information about it! There are a couple websites I've found, and there's one university near me with a forensic nursing program, but not a whole lot else. Hold on a sec. *Goes to find websites*
What is a Forensic Nurse - Definition of Forensic Nursing -
UIC College of Nursing Educational Programs
These all give a pretty good overview, but I just wish there was more information about a day in the life, etc., know what I mean?
- 0Sep 1, '12 by carakristin1Shadowing would be the best. But you know, it just occurred to me that we could probably at least find a way to interview a forensic nurse if we wanted. I'm thinking that either going through a forensic nursing program and asking if any alumni are willing to do a quick interview about their jobs, or interviewing a forensic nurse working at an ER or in corrections like Steph's friend, might be a possiblity. I may look into that during winter break - only 4ish months to go!
- 0Sep 16, '12 by fcasteele10Yes it is fun to read what everyone's goals are. I'm considering getting my BSN, work for a while to gain experience and then go on to MSN. It also depends on the hours and salary I may hold off school for anything past that but for now, with two boys and working part time that's all for now.
