The Advisory Board

clinical nurse specialist in forensics

Forensics requires practitioners who are able to build connections across organizations and professional identities. To help you build these skills, we have convened a diverse group of forensics stakeholders into a multidisciplinary advisory board, made up of leaders in forensic science and related fields. These advisors have contributed to the design of both classroom and clinical experiences, and offer you the opportunity to join a strong professional community from the beginning of your program.
