Connect, engage and learn.  Membership has many benefits.


The Academy of Forensic Nursing was founded in 2018 by visionary forensic nurses who wanted to expand and inform forensic nursing practice, link new and existing research to clinical care, promote education and advocate for policy at the federal and local levels. Core to our mission and our values is integrating equity and trauma-informed approaches into all our work in an inclusive manner.  


The Academy, a 501c3 seeks to collaborate and build partnerships while transforming and informing how we respond to those impacted by all forms of trauma – individual, interpersonal, collective or structural. We believe that "we are stronger together" and that our collective and unique lenses are what will advance the field in meaningful and impactful ways. We believe not only in centering the services we provide, but also centering the individuals who provide those services.
