    Forensic Nursing Types / Degrees?

    I'm still in nursing school and I've become very interested in the idea of forensic nursing. I was torn between the criminal justice and medical fields, but now I realize that I may be able to have the best of both worlds. I just wanted to see if there is anyone out there who can give me a little insight, advice, input, anything would be helpful. Also, I couldn't find a school that carried the program so I may have to take online classes. Has anyone out there earned a degree online or at a university in forensic nursing? And if anyone can explain the different types of forensic nursing then that would be great. Thanks! :)

    New VA Medical Center New Orleans

    Hi, I'm a second level nursing student at Charity and I was wondering if anyone in the area new more about this project? The project is said to be done in 2014 which is the same year that I'll be graduating. I just wanted to know a little more about it from a healthcare professional's view because I'm curious and excited that this will present a great opportunity to me and other future new grads.

    Weekend Incentive Program/Night shift

    This is true :)

    Weekend Incentive Program/Night shift

    That's great! I've heard that a lot of hospitals have already or are doing away with the weekend programs. Hopefully there are still some left in my area (New Orleans.) It's really a shame. I believe that one should definitely be compensated for working such an undesirable shift. Times are tough.

    Oh wow, that sounds fantastic. I'm sure that is hard for you! :) I plan to do the same thing, work that shift, if it's available, for a couple of years while I'm getting my BSN. And I know it's a long ways away, but I plan to eventually work on my Master's so it would be nice to have the experience and save up enough money to go to school full time without having to work.

    I live in New Orleans. Also sorry if I'm not using this site properly, I'm new. I don't know if I have to tag people for them to see my comment like with Facebook. I've just been replying to each individual comment.

    Wow, that's a lot of pay. I'm sure it was worth your degree even if it wasn't your thing!

    Thanks for your input! I really feel like it's something that could work for me as well.

    Weekend Incentive Program/Night shift

    I'm still in Nursing school, but I am very interested in the Weekend Incentive Program when I start applying for a job. I've heard that the RN basically gets paid a full salary/benefits to work the undesirable weekend shift. I'm not sure if anyone can answer this, but my question is could one get paid extra (the night shift differential) as well if they opted to work nights on the weekends? My boyfriend said that night/weekend nurses get paid more. By the way, I know I'm probably coming across as a money monger, but I assure you I am just a young kid trying to get on her feet and I would like to continue my education while working! :)
