Hi Everyone,

I'm currently in my summer break before my last semester of nursing school. I am incredibly interested in forensic nursing and have done a lot of research on the topic. I would really love to find a way to intern with or even shadow a forensic nurse to get a more clear idea of the profession. I live in the Chicago suburbs. Any information on how to go about this would be greatly appreciated!

Also, I have read a lot of the forums on forensic nursing on allnurses, but I wanted to get a clearer picture of what type of background forensic nurses have. What specialty did you practice before becoming a forensic nurse or did you go directly into forensic nursing? How would you recommend breaking into this small specialty?

I have been combing the web for this exact topic. Did anyone ever get back to you (asking five years later)? Hopefully you are in the field now and can offer some advice?

Thank you in advance,

: )
