Canadian Forensic Nurses Association

The Canadian Forensic Nurses Association (CFNA) is a uniquely Canadian organization for forensic nurses to communicate and bridge the distances between us. We were approved as an emerging special interest group of the Canadian Nurses Association in July 2007. CFNA is an organization for nurses who work to prevent violence and/or reduce its consequences (e.g. nurses working with victims of violence, trauma, crime and disaster; forensic psychiatric or correctional populations, or death investigation).
