Forensic nursing is the intersection of medicine, law enforcement, policy and advocacy.  Forensic nurses work with victims of sexual assault, human trafficking and other violent crimes to document their injuries  and provide evidence and expert testimony in court cases. They may also provide expert testimony and advocate for victims rights for the creation of more just laws and public policies.

Kara Breeden, DNP, Founder and CEO of Texas Forensic Nurse Examiners (TXFNE), and Julie Sengstacken, MS-PSL, COO of TXFNE, will join host Valerie F. Leonard to talk about the work of TXNE and the roles forensic nurses and nonprofits can play in combatting violence.

You will learn:

  • The relationship between the roles of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Chief Operating Officer (COO)
  • How TXFNE ensures that their programs are relevant and impactful
  • How forensic nurses work with victims, law enforcement and community stakeholders to fight domestic violence and human trafficking
  • How to transfer lessons learned from their experiences to your own organization, regardless of where you work
