Master of Science in Nursing - Forensic Nursing

Master of Science in Nursing - Forensics Nursing Overview

The mission of the Aspen University School of Nursing is to enhance the health and quality of life for individuals, families, and communities at local, state, and national levels through excellence in teaching, scholarship and practice. The Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program prepares nurses to assume leadership roles in management, education, forensics, public health, informatics and clinical practice within a diverse society and across a spectrum of healthcare settings.

Theory courses combine the basic foundation of traditional education in a convenient distance-learning format, enabling practicing nurses to meet their academic, professional, and personal goals. Practicum courses are performed in a clinical setting, allowing students to apply learned concepts under the direct supervision of a Preceptor.

The forensic nursing major will be exposed to the diverse opportunities for nurses to work with law enforcement for public good. An elective to learn more about sexual crimes, corrections, or legal testimony may be chosen before an in-depth course on violence prevention, mitigation, and reduction. The student will be given an opportunity to create a practicum and capstone that focuses on the type of forensic nursing most desired. The graduate of this program can work in corrections, legal consulting, sexual assault nurse examination, community violence prevention, or in other ways that work with law enforcement.
