Forensic Nursing

It is defined as the function of the nursing process to public or legal proceedings, and the function of forensic health care in the scientific investigation of trauma and/or death related to abuse, violence, criminal activity, liability, and accidents.

Before there was a specialty recognized as forensic nursing, the term used was clinical forensic medicine. This term specifies the use of clinical practices to support judicial proceedings to protect a victim, usually, after death, it will happen. 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.

Most nurses practice with the complete framework of body, mind, and spirit. With forensic nursing established, the role of a nurse was changed to also include the law. There has been an establishment of this major work but it was not created to have nurses become investigators. 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. This work has started to be recognized worldwide and is helping to boost an international focus on violence. The nurses are becoming vital resources for the healthy relationship needed between the health and justice systems.
