I like this graphic for several reasons:
First, it demonstrates that forensic nursing is, indeed, continuing to grow/expand at an exponential rate - but, not only that - it is truly becoming more recognized by mainstream America. This means it is a good time to "get one board!" :-)
Next, I really like that this graphic highlights that there are many different opportunities for forensic nurses - specifically, a wide variety of options that can utilize your background (ER, psychiatry, law, etc.). Not everyone has to be A SANE nurse in order to be a forensic nurse.
Lastly, I like that the blog discusses that forensic nurses have the potential to make reasonable (and actually, significant) salaries. Having been a forensic consultant myself, I have experienced being compensated for my forensic expertise. The one comment that I want to make here is that nurses (in general, and, including forensic nurses) tend to "undercharge" for their services...I think it is a nursing culture thing that we feel guilty about charging too much. Remember, you have worked hard to get where you are - and they need the expertise that you have. If you are unsure about what you should charge for consultative services, reach out to one of your colleagues in the forensic community (use AFN members as a sounding board!).
anyway - Just my two cents about this graphic/blog. I just thought it was useful and informative.
