Objective: to map the sources of technical-scientific information on forensic nursing competencies in disaster situations. Method: scoping review protocol, developed following the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) methodology. The search will be carried out in three stages, by two reviewers, independently, in selected databases and the grey literature, using keywords and descriptors. The selection, initially, will be conducted through the screening of titles, abstracts, and descriptors, observing the inclusion criteria. Subsequently, the texts will be filed in digital folders and read in full by two researchers with the support of an instrument. After extracting the data, the content analysis will be carried out. The summary of the results will be presented using graphs, diagrams, tables, and flow diagrams for the proper alignment with the review's objective and question.
