Bridge the gap between nursing and the law.
As a forensic nurse, you’re equipped to make an impact in the lives of those who truly need your expertise. You can be at the forefront of providing trauma-informed care, collecting evidence and collaborating with legal teams. Choose Duquesne University’s online MSN in Forensic Nursing and graduate from one of the few programs in the country to offer in-depth study in all areas of forensic practice.
In 2002 Duquesne launched one of the nation’s first forensic nursing programs, created by faculty members who are innovators within the field. Forensic nurses don’t only work in hospitals, clinics and emergency rooms. They also work as nurse coroners, expert witnesses and policy makers. Our curriculum reflects the opportunities available — preparing you to become a respected leader who can work collaboratively on a multi‑disciplinary forensic team.
