Virginia A. Lynch is recognized as the preeminent scholar and founder of forensic nursing as a scientific discipline. Her first experience in a crime lab refocused her career, putting forensic nursing at the center of it. For the next thirty years, Lynch worked with patients who were victims of violence. During her tenure as a death investigator in Fort Worth, Texas, Lynch discovered that perpetrators were rarely charged or convicted of their crimes. This was mostly due to lack of evidence…the same evidence that was being inadvertently discarded after physical examinations of victims rather than going to law enforcement agencies. This prompted Lynch to pursue a change in practice which ultimately led to a new nursing specialty. Forensic Nursing helps bridge the gap between the healthcare and legal systems to achieve better health and legal outcomes for victims of violence.
