Building upon that foundation, we will see how the forensic nursing movement developed scopes and standards of practice, entry qualifications, accredited educational curricula and certifications, capable of addressing the needs of all patients intersecting with legal systems.
Today, Forensic Nurses influence standards of practice on a global scale through consensus documents, research, and professional practice, reaching wide-ranging areas such as: the military; domestic, child, and elder abuse; human trafficking; sexual assault; and legal and death investigation.
