Welcome to the Colorado IAFN Chapter!

Your Colorado IAFN Chapter is a way to network with local IAFN members with bi-monthly meetings, educational programs and by communicating with peers to discuss local issues.

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.
