What is a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner?

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.


Course Description
