In an effort to provide important issues to our section members, we plan to publish articles that will illuminate national and international interest. We will also publish reports on the unique contributions of forensic nurses who have been engaged in the humanitarian missions associated with international conflicts and border disputes, which are marked with sexual assaults, child trafficking, torture, and other crimes of interpersonal violence. Additionally, we will announce upcoming professional meetings, educational opportunities, and links to online resources for forensic nurses.
