sexual assault nurse examiner

Has 15 years experience. Specializes in CEN, ED, ICU, PSYCH, PP.

recently got brochure for SANE 5 day course. Where and to what extent might I use this education for my benefit and my patients benefit. Working in an ER I do have to do the assault cases occasionally when they come in. Fortunately not a lot of them, although one day a couple of weeks ago we did like 7 in one day.

Siri,

it came in the mail, I read it and found it interesting although I had never thought about this line of nursing before. I am always open to any education that will help us in the ER.

Many forensic nurses in the ED. You might find this something that appeals to you. Just do some more investigation. Good luck!

I work as a crisis counselor at a crisis center where we have a "nurse examiner" program. All the sexual assaults in the area that don't need to go to the hospital come to our facility where they meet with a counselor and are given an exan by an NP with forensic training. If the victim has to go the hospital, the nurse and counselor go to the hospital to see/examine the victim.
