Master of Science in Nursing: Forensic Nursing
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.
