Sexual Assault

Free Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Course for the New MSU SANE Program

As some of you know, I have spent the last year working with Michigan State University to build a SANE program on campus. Next spring, the program will open its doors; in anticipation of its opening, we will be holding a free SANE training on January 13-17, 2020. Space will be limited, and priority will go to people who are interested in working in the program. We are hiring 4 full-time RNs and a full-time advanced practice nurse who will be the medical director of the program. Prior SANE experience is not required. Anyone interested in working in the program must attend the January course, regardless of prior SANE training or experience. This program will be staffed around the clock; there will be no on-call hours. In addition to the full-time positions, we will also be hiring a small number of adjunct positions to assist when staff members are on vacation or there is a short-term gap in the schedule.

Kim Day and I will be the primary instructors for this course. We are fortunate that IAFN is a partner in this training, and the curriculum has been modified to address the specific and unique challenges that campus communities face, such as FERPA.

Feel free to contact me if you have questions about the course or any of the positions: Registration for the course should also be sent back to me.

Please also feel free to share this with non-forensic nursing listservs and social media sites, particularly for those of you in Michigan. Thanks!
