Welcome to the Connecticut State Chapter

What’s happening in Connecticut?

A message from the president:

Greetings to all CT-IAFN members and friends! It is a pleasure to introduce you to our newsletter. This is a communication tool for all of use to take advantage of.

The new officers have all been busy pulling together and working to increase communication and educational opportunities for CT members. We have had several meetings to discuss the questionnaire, membership, and options for an educational session. Unfortunately the questionnaire and information responses have been minimal, we know everyone is busy. Please take every opportunity to contact us with any concerns or suggestions on how to keep this chapter moving forward.

We appreciate the opportunity to serve as your IAFN officers and look forward to working together to advance forensic nursing in Connecticut.

What is Forensic Nursing

Forensic Nurses specialize in caring for victims and perpetrators of violence. They care for the physical, psychological, and social trauma that occurs in patients who have been assaulted or abused. Forensic nurses also have a specialized knowledge of the legal system and collect evidence, provide medical testimony in court, and provide consultation to legal authorities. To learn more about Forensic Nursing, please visit the IAFN website.
