Sexual Abuse Nurse Examiner

  1. I live in San Antonio, TX and I am interested in becoming a Sexual Abuse Nurse Examiner. Does anyone know the process or where I can go to become one? I plan on calling some schools come Monday, but until then.....

    Thanks

    Try contacting your local rape/battered womens shelter or the assistant DA's office. That is how my hospital got its info on S.A.N.E. training.

    I live near Peoria, Illinois and work in the ER. We have started a SANE program here. The key was our nurse manager - whether the funding was there or not. Contact him/her and go from there. The trainer for us was from Phoenix, AZ I believe.

    I'm not a SANE, but do rape kits on adults and peds when one isn't available.

    Thank you so much for letting me know. I will check that out at a local ER hospital. I did write the Texas Board of Nurses and they didn't have any information to give me.
    Thanks again.
