Testify in court - accent?

  1. Hi:
    I'm interested in forensic nursing. I'm worried my accent will count against me while testifying in court. Anyone with experience and similar situation can share your insights please?

    Additionally, I wanted to know if I should apply for a SANE job that will provide training or shall I learn in a certificate program before applying for such a job.

    Please let me know.

    thanks

    I cant see how an accent can be a negative issue in court. You are not being judged on your accent you will be judged on your knowledge and presentation. It is good to fully understand the English language but being bilinual is also a great asset. From what I understand to get a SANE job you must have taken the week long class , at a minimum.
