Scope of Forensic Nursing

Forensic nursing is a specialty within the nursing profession that involves the application of nursing knowledge and skills in legal and investigative contexts. Forensic nurses are trained to provide care to patients who have experienced trauma or violence and to collect and document evidence related to the circumstances of the patient’s injury or illness.

Forensic nurses may work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, clinics, and forensic laboratories. They may also be called upon to work with law enforcement agencies, courts, and other legal and investigative organizations to provide expert testimony and support in criminal and civil cases.

Some of the specific responsibilities and duties of forensic nurses may include:

  • Providing medical care and support to patients who have experienced trauma or violence
  • Collecting and preserving physical evidence related to the circumstances of the patient’s injury or illness
  • Documenting patient care and evidence collection in a manner that is legally defensible
  • Providing expert testimony in criminal and civil cases
  • Educating other healthcare professionals, law enforcement personnel, and the public about forensic nursing and related topics
  • Participating in research and advocacy efforts related to forensic nursing and trauma care

Forensic nurses may work with victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, child abuse, and other crimes. They may also be involved in the care and investigation of cases involving elder abuse, workplace violence, or other types of trauma.
