SANE Program Course Description
This 40 hour course is designed to give the basic knowledge of the role of the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) nurse. The training will provide content in all areas pertaining to care of the adolescent and adult sexual assault victims. The training is consistent with the Standards of Practice as defined by the International Association of Forensic Nurses. This 40-hour didactic course is geared towards the Registered Nurse, but is informative for physicians, law enforcement officers and prosecutors. The 40-hour training is designed to provide a comprehensive education program in the complete assessment, evaluation and treatment of the adult sexual assault survivor. This 5-day intensive course will provide the professional nurse who is interested in practicing as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) with the knowledge and skills necessary to independently examine the female and male adolescent/adult victim of sexual assault. Each participant will receive in-depth orientation to the physical, emotional and social reactions to rape and sexual assault. In addition, each participant will have the opportunity to learn  to perform a standard evidentiary physical evaluation and examination and collection of forensic evidence.

Presented by: Dr. Linda E. Ledray
Dr. Linda E. Ledray was the founder of the Minneapolis, Minnesota-based Sexual Assault Resource Service (SARS), one of the first Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) programs, which she developed in 1977. She has personally assisted with the implementation and development of SANE programs across the U.S. and in numerous other countries. Dr. Ledray convened the first meeting of SANEs in Minneapolis in 1992, which resulted in the founding of the International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN). She is on the IAFN Certification Board and is an Editorial Board member for the Journal of Forensic Nursing, the official journal of the IAFN. One of Dr. Ledray’s greatest accomplishments is a nursing focused service delivery model that provides responsive treatment for the sexual assault survivor. Dr. Ledray has taught nationally and internationally on sexual assault issues and has authored the book, Recovering from Rape.
