Forensic nursing, an American Nursing Association (ANA) recognized specialty, continues to experience growth with the subspecialty of sexual assault nurse examiners (SANEs) remaining the largest group within the specialty (Ledray, 1999).  Sexual assault nurse examiners (SANEs) are registered nurses specially trained in all aspects of the care of sexually assaulted patients; medical evaluation, forensic evidence collection, and emotional support of victims and family members.  Most often SANEs work collaboratively through a hospital or emergency room with other members of a sexual assault response team (SART) such as physicians, law enforcement, social workers, child/adult protective service workers and therapists.
