Introduction

The Master of Science in Nursing-Forensic Nursing track prepares the graduate to care for victims and perpetrators of traumatic events or criminal acts through completion of a 36-semester credit hour curriculum. While caring for their patients, the forensic nurse is also responsible for observing, recognizing, collecting, and documenting forensic evidence related to the traumatic event or criminal act for subsequent use in civil or criminal legal proceedings. The course instruction is delivered primarily online allowing students to balance career, family, and other responsibilities while advancing their education.

Admitted students will be asked to travel to the Bryan-College Station campus for a one-day New Student Conference prior to the start of the program and a limited number of class activities. Advanced Health Assessment requires students to complete a total of 45 hours on the Bryan-College Station campus to meet the clinical objectives of the course as set forth by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing for any MSN degree. Students will complete the clinical hours in two separate on-campus visits requiring overnight stays for students at a distance. Students will be responsible for obtaining their own preceptors for two courses taken in the later semesters. Further information on preceptors will be provided at orientation.
