How They Celebrated Forensic Nurses Week...

Image of various nursing professionals

"I was able to get all the staff in the ER including doctors to wear purple. It was great, the support my colleagues showed considering that I am the only forensic certified nurse in our hospital."

~ER Nurse, New Hampshire

"Here in Whiteriver, we took our SANE's pictures and wrote an article for our hospital paper updating everyone on what the SANE program here was doing and some of our goals.  I hope to get them all something next year!

~Assistant Clinical Applications Coordinator

"Two of us from the SANE team had just recently returned from the IAFN scientific assembly in Atlanta, GA and we brought back Forensic Nursing posters to decorate the office walls and we also bought our group a copy of the IAFN Forensic Nursing: Scope & Standards of Practice resource to add to the library."

"I helped spread the message of the value of forensic nurses by e-mailing the international press release to the CEO of Hamilton Health Sciences here in Hamilton, Ontario- along with a short note on the superb work of the forensic nurse examiners in the Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence Program. I also sent a note and the press release to the Public Relations office as well and they posted it on the hospital's intranet."

~SANE Nurse, Ontario, Canada

"We celebrated by starting a journal club and each month we have agreed to review a research article and contribute to each others professional development needs.  Our Health Authority also acknowledged Forensic Nursing Week in their regional newsletter distributed to all 16,000 staff, volunteers and physician's. We look forward to celebrating the 2nd annual Forensic Nurses Week!"

"I gave all the forensic examiners in our program a goody bag... (and) put homemade cookies in the bag and made it look pretty with purple tissue paper… and wrote them a card to express my appreciation for what they do for our program."

~Program Coordinator, Arizona

"I wore my "Violence is a Health Care Issue" T- shirt, and gave the "Forensic Nurses Week" poster to be put up in the emergency department of the city's trauma centre. Finally, I put together the Policy Package and hand delivered it to the office of my local member of parliament. I am looking forward to Forensic Nurses Week 2010!"

"In Wisconsin, we celebrated by holding our quarterly meeting during that week and celebrated with a cake that was made specifically to celebrate Forensic Nursing.  At the end of our meeting, we gave away a year membership to IAFN to one of the lucky attendees!"

~Manager, Professional Practice, Wisconsin

"The poster that we received is now posted in our tiny room that is used post-patient care and dictation.  As I sit at the desk and look at it, I feel much pride in what I do."
