Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Training
Trained forensic nurse examiner teams are the standard in many communities throughout the country for providing both evidence collection examinations and sensitive, compassionate care following sexual assault and rape.
Using on-line modules and classroom time, this 40-hour course will provide the basic didactic and clinical information to begin the process of becoming a sexual assault nurse examiner (SANE) for adolescent and adult victims. The training includes presentations from SANE nurses, local law enforcement, district attorney’s office, advocates and therapists working with victims of sexual assault and rape. Practical experience with a focus on assessment and photo-documentation of injury is a primary objective of this course.
