Bringing nursing expertise to the fight against violence.
NANCY CABELUS, DNP, APRN, AFN-BC, a Connecticut Nurses Association member, has been a state trooper, a major crimes detective, a forensic nurse, and a U.S. diplomat. She’s traveled the world putting her nursing skills to work for women’s justice and prevention of child abuse, human trafficking, and sexual violence. She now divides her time between private practice, teaching part-time at the University of Saint Joseph in West Hartford, Connecticut, contributing to the American Nurses Association’s (ANA) #EndNurse Abuse Professional Issues Panel, leading the International Association of Forensic Nurses Connecticut chapter, and taking care of her mom. ANA recently spoke with Cabelus about violence prevention and her varied career.
