How Much Do Forensic Nurses Make?

The job of a forensic nurse  may sound so  glamorous due to shows featuring Crime Scene Investigations like  CSI, CSI Miami, and CSI New York. However, it requires more than just caring for crime victims. You also help in the investigation of crimes,  collecting evidence for DNA testing, and testifying  in court. And before you can become one, you need to go back to school to learn how to collect hair, saliva and other fluids.

While criminal cases arise in the community, forensic nurses are becoming popular. It offers great opportunities for nursing graduates and experienced Registered Nurses looking for a career change.

Forensic nurses are commonly found at the Emergency Room. For example the case of the distraught mother who brings in her son who is complaining that his leg hurts.

The mother says that his son fell down the stairs when he tries to catch the basketball. Check vitals and get an x-ray of the leg to see if it’s broken right?

Did you make the child change into a gown? Did you get a complete head to toe assessment? Because without it, you would have missed the evidence of previous contusions on his arm from two weeks ago when he was beat with a wrench for not cleaning his room right.

When a Forensic nurse take cases which is not under a criminal investigation, but was caused for example a natural calamity like typhoon, earthquake or landslides, it will fall under Medico Legal Death Investigation

There is no standard salary for a Forensic Nurse. It may vary from area of the country as well as the experience level of the nurse. Some hospitals offer a minimum of $1-4 dollars an hour for on-call nurses. If the SANE is called in for a case, the nurse will receive one to 1 1/2 times their base pay rate. Some organizations will not pay in hourly, but on a per case basis, it will range from $150-$400 depending on the agreement. In one website, it has sited that a forensic nursing salary starts at around $26 per hour and can reach as high as $100. These rates are typically higher than a standard nursing wage, due to the advanced training and education that is involved in becoming a forensic nurse, as well as the compensation for being on-call.

Forensic nursing can be a thrilling profession. They treat patients on criminal cases and usually worked with victims of violent crime and can help in scene investigations

    US Nursing Schools adrift? Philippines overwhelmed. Obama’s reform.

    Posted in Allgen Review Center, Barack Obama, Board of Nursing, Nursing Career, Nursing Immigration with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 20, 2009 by allgen2008

    While the Philippines has an overwhelming number of nursing graduates (close to 160, 000 board takers last year ), the United States only had 2.0 percent (2%) enrollment growth from 2007 to 2008 according to a press release by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN).

    This report is based on an actual data submitted by 428 nursing schools who participated in a survey in 2007 and 2008.

    Number 1 reason affecting this slow enrollment growth is FACULTY SHORTAGE. Faculty age continues to climb (average age between 51 to 58 ). More and more US nurse educators are expected to retire within the next ten (10) years. Because of this, about 28,000 qualified students were turned down in 2008 by US nursing schools.

    Tomorrow when Barack Obama is sworn into presidency, more health care jobs will  open in 2010 due to his economic reforms. In relation to the shortage of US nursing students, President Obama will have to turn to other countries to fill these positions. It also means, more Filipino nurses will be deployed sooner.
