   schema:reviewBody ""Forensic Nursing takes an objective yet engaging look at a profession that, according to author and journalist, Kelly M. Pyrek, "is only for those with a strong stomach, a pure heart, and a quick mind." It presents the personal experiences and perspectives of forensic nurses who work in all areas of forensic and critical care/emergency practice." "The book explores the many medico-legal issues that a forensic nurse encounters during the course of a career and details the pertinent medico-legal skill sets that every forensic nurse should acquire. It describes how to effectively yet sensitively approach situations involving sexual assault and interpersonal violence. The text also illustrates how to conduct a successful medico-legal death investigation." "Also of particular interest is information on legal nurse consulting and nursing jurisprudence. The book describes how to prepare for trial and how to maintain professional conduct in the courtroom. It details how to collect DNA evidence and how to deal with the medico-legal issues that may arise from this evidence. Forensic Nursing also serves as a career road map for the beginning forensic nurse; as a motivational tool for the immediate-level nurse; and as a chronicle of past, present, and future challenges and victories for the advanced/seasoned practitioner."--Jacket." ;
