Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program

Forensic Health Science Certificate

Forensic Science is on the threshold of biotechnical advancement. Individuals working in the human service area can facilitate a valuable service in the transition of trauma victims from health care institutions to the court of law. The forensically educated professional could be a critical component in facilitating the proper recognition and collection of evidence in complex forensic cases. With the application of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) profiling, virtually any scrap of evidence can provide genetic evidence to assist in the apprehension (or elimination) of a perpetrator. These new technologies are helping to revolutionize the ability to bring justice criminals who commit violent crimes.
