Forensic nursing is defined as the application of the nursing process to public or legal proceedings, and the application of forensic health care in the scientific investigation of trauma and/or death related to abuse, violence, criminal activity, liability, and accidents.
Like all nurses, forensic nurses focus on patient care, but they combine this training with keen observation skills to assist police and legal professionals with criminal investigations. Forensic nurses are skilled at recognizing inconsistencies that help resolve medical issues, and they act as a bridge between healthcare and law enforcement. Typical specialties include sexual assault, child abuse, child neglect, elder abuse, and domestic violence. Forensic nurses use their medical and criminology studies and evaluate suspicious behaviors and activities.
