Guest: Angelia Trujillo, teaches forensic nursing at the University of Alaska Anchorage, School of Nursing and is author of the article, "A Practical Guide to Prevention for Forensic Nursing," which was published in the Journal of Forensic Nursing By the time a forensic nurse gets involved in a sexual assault case, the crime has already been committed, the physical and emotional damage already done. The forensic nurse collects evidence from the victim's body, takes photographs and helps police find and prosecute the perpetrator.
