IAFN

I wonder how many of you have thought about running for an IAFN elected position … whether on the Board of Directors, the Nominating Committee, or the Commission for Forensic Nursing Certification. Giving back to the organization is very rewarding, satisfying, a fabulous learning experience and lots of fun.

Glowing dye could put more rapists in jail
Futurity
After a rape, forensic nurses fully document sexual assault victims' injuries by using a dye that causes lacerations and tears on the skin to "light up." But the dye—a dark blue—doesn't show on people of color, and that often means the perpetrators go free.

"In the light of the recognition by the Holy See of sexual violence against children committed by members of the clergy, brothers and nuns in numerous countries around the world, and given the scale of the abuses", the UNCRC believed it is high time that the Vatican should provide detailed information on all cases of child sexual abuse committed by the Catholic clergy around the world.
