Adult/Adolescent Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Training

Every 98 seconds an American is sexually assaulted. Every 8 minutes that victim is a child. Be a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) when it's needed most. An Adult/Adolescent Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Training will be held Monday, March 27 - Friday, March 31.

Adult and adolescent patients presenting to emergency departments for concerns of sexual abuse/assault are common. Care for this patient population requires specialized training for medical and nursing providers. The SANE training provides a strong foundation for nurses to acquire the needed knowledge and skills in providing this specialized care to a vulnerable patient population.

If you are interested in becoming a SANE, training will be held on campus March 27 - March 31 in Carrington Hall, Room L700, at 120 N. Medical Drive.

Scholarships are available. If you have questions or are seeking advice to decide whether to become a SANE, contact SANE coordinator Koren Garrity at koren.garrity@unchealth.unc.edu
