Forensic Nurse Examiner Program

Serving Counties in North Alabama

Our Forensic Nurse Examiners (FNE's) are Registered Nurses that are specially trained in the field of forensics. They provide medical care and forensic documentation for victims of sexual, physical and domestic violence assault.

 An exam by a FNE is available 24 hours/day, 7 days a week. The exam could include:

  • Forensic examination of assault or abuse victims with evidence collection

  • Photographic documentation of injuries

  • Treatment and evaluation of sexually transmitted infections

  • Pregnancy risk evaluation

  • Expert witness testimony

  

  • IMPORTANT: If you have been sexually assaulted, do not bathe, shower, change clothes, eat, drink, use mouthwash or brush your teeth, and if possible, do not use the restroom. Doing so could destroy or damage valuable evidence.​
