Eligibility & Application
Nurse Affiliate Membership with the Faculty is open to those who:
1. are qualified nurses registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council or equivalent abroad and are working or intending to work in Forensic and Legal Nursing, either full-time or part-time
2. are working in a field that the Board determines is allied to Forensic and Legal Nursing. The individual should be registered with an appropriate regulatory body or studying in an allied field.
If you meet the requirements, you can complete the online form (link) for consideration at the next Membership & Fellowship Committee (MFC). The submission closing dates are available for each meeting held during the year.
If the MFC approve your application, you then need to complete and sign a Form of Faith, (link) and make your subscription payment, and then your membership will be shared with the Board for ratification to complete the process.
If you are a qualified healthcare professional, the FFLM needs to verify that you are registered with a professional regulatory body and that you are in good standing. Please provide the web address of your regulatory body to enable the FFLM to verify your status on-line. If you know it is not possible to verify your status on-line with your particular regulatory body, then please provide the full name and postal address of the body.
The Board may exercise its discretion on a case by case basis and allow you, if you do allied work, or if you are in training, to join as an Affiliate member even if you are not registered with a regulatory body.
Please note: If you are a healthcare professional and the FFLM cannot verify that you are in good standing with a professional regulatory body, then your application for membership will not be successful.
