What Is A Forensic Nurse
Examiner (FNE) or SANE?
Nurse Examiners (FNE or SANE) help victims by providing
immediate, compassionate, culturally sensitive, and
comprehensive forensic evaluation and treatment by trained,
professional nurse experts.
The Coordinator collaborates
with the existing SANE/FNE nurses and SART programs across the
state, and works with key stakeholders to develop new programs.
We also develop
SART* Teams, between healthcare professionals and law
enforcement officials, LEVAs, Solicitors and Solicitor
Advocates, DSS officials, prosecutors and solicitor advocates,
Victim/Witness Specialists and staff of domestic violence
agencies and sexual assault centers, to improve delivery of
services to victims of domestic violence/sexual assault.
