Day in the life of a Forensic Nurse??

  1. Hi,

    Could any of you experienced Forensic Nurses give me a brief snapshot of a day in your life? When a patient comes to you, are you responsible for total care (such as a bedside nurse) or do you offer more of an ancillary service? I'm very interested in this career because I would love to combine my love of medicine/ science while bringing justice where justice is due.

    Thanks to all!

    You are not an advocate in the role of Forensic Nurse; not in essence. Your role is that of support.
