Sustainable SANE-led teams begin with nurses who want to do this work. SAFE-T helps interested nurses learn about the role and identify whether they may be a fit for this work. All nurses receive comprehensive training that includes an International Association of Forensic Nurses-approved didactic course and an immersive clinical skills practicum.

From the moment nurses complete their training, they have access to expert SAFE-T teleSANE preceptorss who will partner with them during exams and help them to develop their practice as a new SANE. Nurses can rest assured knowing that the SAFE-T teleSANE expert is truly a partner who they can rely on for support and mentorship. In addition to live exam support, nurses can participate and receive continuing education by participating in various SAFE-T training opportunities including journal club and photo review. Finally, should you be subpoenaed to testify in court, SAFE-T teleSANEs will work with you to review the case and prepare for court. With SAFE-T, you are never alone in this work.

What Nurses Are Saying

I really appreciate having the telehealth collaboration as it just ensures that you have adequate support while doing these sensitive exams and they provide very good feedback and assist when you need it.
I felt very supported with my teleSANE. If I was tripped up and forgot a step or the patient asked a question that I wasn’t fully sure of, she was able to step in and help out.
I was so thankful to have [SAFE-T teleSANE] there with me. It was a difficult case but she was extremely supportive and really helped me build confidence throughout my first exam.
The teleSANE was crucial for the success of this exam. Thank you!
