Before there was a specialty recognized as forensic nursing, the term used was clinical forensic medicine.

It was not until the late 20th century that medical professionals wanted more team work between the medical and legal systems. In the United States, this problem began to be addressed.

Their goal is to work with a possible victim and make sure the proper medical but also forensic tasks are accomplished. The forensic evidence is then passed on to the criminal justice system for proper investigation.
