I once told my Nursing Management professor, who is a high-ranked military nurse, that I wanted to be forensic nurse. Its in my knowledge that there are no forensic nursing program in the Philippines. But then she told me that she knows some nurses who practice forensic science in the AFP Medical Center where she is working. I think it will be good for you to apply as a military nurse or a nurse trainee on the AFP Medical Center, then do some further training with them about forensic science. And from there, you can spark a promising forensic nursing career.
But if you have the resources, why not enroll to a forensic nursing program abroad.
