Forensic Nursing Career Paths

by

According to Colleen O’Brien over at Nurseweek.com:

“Forensic nursing is multifaceted. There are coroners’ offices, domestic violence [settings], and nurses who work in a hospital or clinic setting. There’s the sexual assault subspecialty, and that includes children, adolescents, adults, male, female, and elderly. The majority of SANE programs across the country are hospital-based, although you will find programs in district attorneys’ offices, rape crisis centers, and there are a couple [of community-based programs] that work out of YWCAs.”

Questions:

Can you think of any other settings where Forensic Nursing Certification may be of value?

As Forensic Nursing comes into it’s own as a professional practice and discipline, what are some of the things that can be done to create and maintain an accepted set of “standard practices”?
