The MSN–Forensic Nursing track prepares the graduate to care for victims and perpetrators of traumatic events or criminal acts that result in trauma or death. While caring for their patients, the forensic nurse is also responsible for observing, recognizing, collecting and documenting forensic evidence related to the traumatic event or criminal act for subsequent use in civil or criminal legal proceedings.

The majority of course instruction is delivered online allowing students to balance career, family and other responsibilities while advancing their education. Students complete 36 semester credit hours in six semesters taking six hours each term, including summers, to earn the degree. When taking NURS 653 (Advanced Health Assessment), students are required to come to the Bryan-College Station campus on two to three separate occasions for overnight stays to complete clinical hours in the Simulation Lab. Students will be responsible for obtaining their own preceptors for two courses taken in the later semesters. More information will be provided at new student orientation.
