(Registration deadline is April 29, 2015)



Course Description

This 16 hour classroom training follows the completion of the WV Online SANE Training and completes the didactic portion of the 40 hour Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Training.


The 2 day SANE classroom training (16 hour practicum) provides knowledge and practical application specific to the collection of the forensic evidence and the WV sexual assault evidence collection kit for the adult/adolescent Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) Course.


Completion of the online SANE training and classroom training does not “certify” the nurse to perform sexual assault exams. Satisfactory completion indicates that the nurse has completed the 40 hour coursework required for the SANE training.


Post-clinical requirements are the responsibility of the nurse to arrange after the didactic course.


RNs MUST attend both days of the training and have completed the 24 hours of online SANE training to receive a certificate of completion.


This course meets the educational guidelines of the International Association of Forensic Nurses.
