Forensic Nursing

This program is no longer enrolling new students.

Forensic nursing is the practice of nursing in which health care and the legal systems intersect. An emerging field, forensic nursing encompasses a body of specialized knowledge that serves a unique and critical role in the health care and judicial systems.

As a registered forensic nurse, you’ll collaborate with the field of law to apply nursing science to public and legal proceedings ― protecting, promoting, and optimizing health by providing services to individuals while consulting with health care providers, the insurance sector, attorneys, and law-related agencies.

Monmouth is proud to be one of few schools in the nation to offer this program. This dynamic field allows specialization such as:

  • Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE)
  • Child or Elder Abuse
