American Board of Forensic Nursing

Welcome to ABFN Online

The American Board of Forensic Nursing (ABFN) is an Advisory Board under the American College of Forensic Examiners Institute (ACFEI). Please see below for updates and events.

“ACFEI membership has provided information that I am able to pass along to my clients in my legal nurse consulting business. The diversity of other disciplines provides my consultations with resources and current information from other areas of practice. I have also found that the articles in The Forensic Examiner® give me the edge with other consultants in my field of nursing.”

—Diane L. Reboy, MS, BSN, RN, CFN, DABFN, member since 1999
