November 3 - 7, 2014, 5 Full Days
Are you a nurse who is challenged to provide the best possible care to some of the most vulnerable patients you might see in acute or primary care settings—children and adolescents who are physically and/or emotionally abused? Join us for an in-person, five-day course that will enhance your clinical knowledge and start building your skills in conducting medical/forensic screening exams for potential child sexual abuse. Sexual assault experts will be on hand to answer your questions and share their expertise as you learn to provide high quality care to children and families and prepare to submit evidence that will be useful in court.
In order to complete the Pediatric Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner training, each participant must fulfill an additional, separate clinical component. Our training, when combined with the necessary clinical hours, meets all of the educational requirements as outlined by the International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN) for taking the certification exam as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner-Pediatric (SANE-P). This program has been approved by the North Carolina Board of Nursing.
