Life of a Forensic Nurse

Ever wondered what other career options you have as a nurse besides working inside the hospital? Why not try forensic nursing? They say this is not for the weak-stomached or the weak-willed. Forensic nurses take action in crime scene investigations. They examine the bodies of people who have died in an accident or otherwise.

Forensic Nurse is defined by the International Association of Forensic Nurses as a nurse who provides specialized care for patients, both victims and perpetrators of violence. They care for the physical, psychological, and social trauma that occur in patients who have been assaulted or abused.

Aside from examining dead bodies, Forensic Nurses also go to emergency rooms to provide care to patients who seems to be abused.

Are you the kind of nurse who seeks action and adventure? Then this field of nursing is probably for you.
