Forensic nurse observers (FNE) are getting integral mates in contemporary medico legal systems worldwide. Being forensic services have been proven shy to sufficiently address the vast crimes against women and children, victims of sexual and domestic violence, sociocultural crimes, vituperative religious rituals, and atrocities that accompany fortified conflict. Considering that nurses comprise the largest group of healthcare providers worldwide, forensic nanny observers represent a preliminarily uncelebrated resource in universal healthcare and embody an ideal group to advance transnational considerations in global healthcare and social justice. Although specific legal enterprises within the healthcare communities vary from country to country, all nations struggle with issues of public health and safety. A comprehensive multidisciplinary forensic education and training program for nurses will grease advanced operation of being interpersonal and sexual violence heads. The addition of a forensic specialist in nursing wisdom will give a precious resource to help in the validation of prosecutors’ claims or aid in the exculpation of suspects who are falsely indicted. Their unique benefactions increase collaboration and cooperation, share medical/forensic moxie, enhance the care of victims of crimes while accelerating forensic services, and act as a liaison in applicable liabilities between healthcare institutions and law enforcement agencies. The applicable literature indicates that once the Forensic nurse Examiner Response Team is trained, specialists in forensic nursing wisdom practice singly under the aegis of a Director of Clinical Forensic drug or Chief Medical Examiner.
