The Specialty of Forensic Nursing

Personally, I think that Forensic Nursing course should be incorporated into all nursing program curriculums, because in most of all healthcare settings nurses are faced dealing with some type of forensic matter; such as abuse/neglect, med errors or injuries. Sometimes these matters do become legal issues. This specialized training equip nurses with knowledge and skills in dealing with different cases that require protecting valuable evidence. Also these nurses are able to clue in on behavior responses or physical changes that may be indicative of some form of abuse/neclect.
