The official job market for forensic nursing and nursing jobs.
In a grant funded project by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, IAFN developed a "road map" to identify ways to incorporate primary prevention into forensic nursing practice.
The Indian Health Service (IHS) has funded the International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN) to develop, deliver, and evaluate in-person and web-based training related to the identification, collection, and preservation of medical forensic evidence obtained during the treatment of victims of sexual and domestic violence.
Designed in collaboration with criminal justice, advocacy, and health care professionals, SAFESTAR is a unique model of care that relies upon community based lay health care providers to provide evidentiary examinations for Native victims of sexual assault.
IAFN, with funding from the Office on Victims of Crime, created this 24-hour course for registered nurses who provide direct care to vulnerable older adults in various settings. The goal of the course is to help nurses acquire essential knowledge and skills to appropriately respond to elder mistreatment.
As the opportunities for online connection and dialogue grow and as the use of Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and other social networking outlets grow, so to must a nurse's vigilance to protect the confidentiality of patients. IAFN has assembled these recommended resources on the use of social media by nurses.
