Welcome to the Texas Chapter

Our Mission: To provide leadership in forensic nursing practice by developing, promoting, and disseminating information internationally about forensic nursing science.

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.
