*Any nurse who has attended a SANE course (either SANE-A or SANE-P) may attend the skills lab.  However, the Skills Lab focuses on the adult and adolescent patient.  Most of the concepts in the Skills Lab will also be pertinent to pediatric patients (evidence collection, handling, photography, and more).  The skills stations would have material relevant to the adolescent patient, but may not be relevant to the pediatric patient.
