Sexual assault nurse examiner training begins
On September 14, interested nurses began training to become Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE). A SANE delivers precise care and assistance to sexual assault victims and are more competent at collecting evidence that meets legal standards.
SAMC nurses completed the classroom portion of their training last week. Clinical training is now underway and SAMC's SANE services will go live after completion of all clinical training requirements later this fall. In the photo, Chris Jolliffe, RN, SANE program coordinator at Children's Hospital of Alabama leads a classroom training session.
