Forensic Nurse Examiner Program

Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office Forensic Nurse Examiner Program is Looking for Registered Nurse Candidates

Forensic nurse examiners offer compassionate, comprehensive care to victims of sexual assault. Qualified through a specialized forensic nursing education, they assess, examine and evaluate the sexual assault patient. A forensic nurse will also locate, collect and package forensic evidence relevant to the crime, consult with hospital staff for medical needs, and provide information for referrals for the patients to continue their care and recovery. In the courtroom, forensic nurse examiners represent the victim serving as an expert witness who offers testimony based on their documented evidence.

Through their work and dedication, forensic nurses participate in the criminal justice process and assist the public at large. A forensic nursing certification can lead to a career that makes a difference to the health of the patients and the communities they serve as a result of their expertise and compassion.


  • Interested registered nurses with a minimum of two years nursing experience
  • NJ licensure in good standing
  • Successful completion of a criminal background check
