Continued Discussion Regarding Forensic Nursing Definition Article of September 8, 2006


My hat is off to forensic nurses! I did not realize the extent of their practice until I read the article and accompanying discussions on this topic. A lot is at stake regarding this extremely detailed and personal assessment.

I’m always been fascinated by the assessment and data collection that takes place with the victims of crime. Hence, the popularity of such television shows as “CSI and NCI.” I would imagine it to be like finding clues and hopefully piecing together a puzzle. It would have to take a very determined and strong nurse to participate in this practice day in and day without becoming cold and detached or disillusioned with the human race entirely. Maybe it requires an intense focus on compassion and aiding the victim as well as the satisfaction of helping to bring the offender of these heinous crimes to justice.
