Forensic nursing is a cross between a healthcare profession and a judicial system profession. They have a variety of roles, including evaluating and caring for victims of assault, domestic abuse, child and elder abuse, neglect, and sexual crimes. As they treat the victim, forensic nurses collect and secure evidence. Forensic nurses may be asked to testify in court about the medical information and the evidence that they have collected. Forensic nursing sub-specialties include death investigations, medical-legal consulting, and forensic psychiatric nursing.
