Forensic Nurses

My service to IAFN has always been an honor for me and an opportunity to give back to my colleagues who have been there for me during my nursing career.  The committees on which I have served have been a springboard to connecting with other forensic nurses, growing as a nurse and seeing forensic nurses through the eyes of others.  This has expanded my ability to care for patients, to develop educational opportunities for forensic nurses, and to advance my scholarship.

What People are Saying About the Curriculum

I am sharing with all the NPs and NP organizations that I am involved with. That is the value of such a product. Forensic nurses all need to share their wealth of knowledge with others who have less expertise.  I know I will use it in my undergrad and graduate courses as well as the Geriatric NP students! Great job.  Patricia Crane

As a nurse educator, I think this is a wonderful resource to help faculty provide information about elder maltreatment to nursing students. As IAFN members, this is a great opportunity to network with our states' schools of nursing to promote scholarship in forensic nursing and to demonstrate IAFN's leadership. Members can send the link to your area's nursing schools' directors in a "Dear Colleague"  type email for a personal invitation to share the curriculum with faculty members.  Elise Turner
