Two articles highlight the differences between forensic nursing around the world. Nurses in the Boston area talk about the advanced training they receive to perform forensic exams. A nurse in South Africa discusses being the only sexual assault nurse in the region (in addition to her full-time job). In addition to providing medical care and DNA collection, she may counsel rape survivors for up to 6 months. One common theme–it’s a tough job, but it’s a rewarding job.
