Forensic Nursing: Scope and Standards of Practice, 2nd Edition is the most current and comprehensive delineation of the practice and professional performance common to and expected of forensic RNs and APRNs.

As a whole, these competencies can frame the evaluation of practice outcomes and goals of forensic nurses and delineate what is expected of their practice by their healthcare peers and others. Its scope of practice-the what, how, where, when, who, and why of their practice-is the context for applying these standards.
