This study aimed to clarify attributes, antecedents, and consequences of forensic nursing competency.
Rodgers' evolutionary concept analysis was used to analyze twenty nine articles on forensic nursing based on a systematic review of theology, medicine, psychology, and nursing literature.
Forensic nursing competency consists of the following seven attributes: awareness of the medico-legal problem, multi-disciplinary integrated knowledge, education and training in forensic science, professional career development, evidence based practice in forensic nursing, collaborative forensic nursing with community partner, safety and security effective communication, and supportive relationships. Finally, we could explain the consequences of forensic nursing competency on knowledge construction in nursing, enhancing professional nursing, and establishing a human rights and social justice based approach. The antecedents of forensic-nursing competency were forensic science interest, forensic science experience, and nurses' view of person in forensic-works.
Based on these results, we recommend the development of a Korean version of a scale to assess forensic nursing competency.
Key Words: Forensic nursing, Competency, Concept formation
