Forensic nurses are the advocates for patients who often have no voice. They work with law enforcement to collect medical evidence for victims of violent crime to help catch the perpetrator. One of the areas where forensic nurses are used is for sexual assault cases. With a background in patient advocacy, these nurses can collect valuable evidence while offering strength and support to the victims. With experience in medicine and physiology, they can help translate exam details into crucial evidence that can help catch the assailant and protect countless others from ever becoming victims.
