The Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) is a registered nurse who has been specially trained to care for the complex issues surrounding victims of sexual assault. The purpose of this training is to teach interested Registered Nurses how to better care for their patients by recognizing, collecting and preserving evidence, interviewing victims and linking them to vital community resources for follow-up.
This 40-hour didactic course is geared towards the Registered Nurse. It is designed to provide a comprehensive education program in the complete assessment, evaluation and treatment of the adult sexual assault survivor. Upon completion of the 40-hour didactic training, there is a post-training clinical requirement that must be completed according to the nurse's scope of practice and guidelines of the training course. RNs MUST attend ALL five days of the training to receive contact hours. This course meets the educational guidelines of the International Association of Forensic Nurses.
