Best Pathway

Specializes in Pediatrics.

I am looking for guidance on the best pathway to become a forensic nurse. I've read articles but I'm a bit overwhelmed because it seems there are multiple pathways and I don't know what is best or most recommended. I am fully willing to go to a masters program if that is what is recommended, I am interested in graduate school.

If it helps I am located in Texas (though this may not be my permanent home), 2.5 years of experience and certified in pediatrics. I don't have a background in ER and I've noticed in some areas that's recommended. Any advice would be appreciated!

I'm excited to see what people share because that's interested me for awhile. Most of the information I've gotten (back when I was a staff nurse and there was a talk on it) was doing rape kits etc and I wasn't into that back then and still am not, really. Maybe, since I wasn't interested in the forensic nursing, since I was a new nurse and knew I couldn't do it for awhile, I just didn't pay enough attention, but I want to know more now! xo
