Forensic nursing has become the fastest growing specialty within nursing.
Dr. Pamela D. Tabor, DNP-Forensics, AFN-BC and Lauren Wegener, BSN, RN, Forensic MSN-student, are the highly qualified experts selected for this intensive training. They know all too well that across various nursing roles, specialties and settings you are seeing victims of trauma, violence, intentional/unintentional injuries, and death.
Advance your practice as you synthesize crimes involving patients, including forensic case studies and photographs. This practice changing event will provide resources and tools to learn from: evidence collection kits, body maps/diagrams, bite mark rulers, alternative light sources and a shaken infant model to demonstrate traumatic injuries.
Explore fascinating charting examples that delve into very difficult clinical scenarios: drug facilitated sexual assault, strangulation, intimate partner violence, human trafficking and infant death investigation.
Our patients require and deserve compassionate, devoted, and well-trained forensic nurses to avoid re-victimization - and to begin the healing process. Imagine if you had that superpower!
