Welcome to the North Carolina IAFN Chapter!

The North Carolina Chapter of the International Association of Forensic Nurses is the only professional organization in the state of North Carolina designed to unite forensic nurses and those interested in the science of forensics. Our goal is to provide enhanced communication and educational opportunities throughout our state. For general questions please email questions to Jacque@jacqueperkins.com.

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.
