SART/SANE nurse

  1. I have been a nurse for almost 10 years now, the first 8 in an ER. I currently work for a company that owns and operates small private clinics in our area (we do everything from primary care to urgent care). Does anyone know if you can ONLY work in an ER/ED if you are a SART nurse? I would like to propose to the company I work for the idea of having a RN who is SART certified who can travel to any of the clinics if need be for an examination. We have very few sexual assaults (I believe one clinic had 2 assaults over the last 6 months or so) but the nurses in the clinics found it hard to convince the victims to go to the hospital. I believe it would be easier to convince a victim to have the exam if it could be done in the privacy of the clinic they are already at...

    Thoughts?

    Thanks!
