Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing (JHUSON) and the Institute for Johns Hopkins Nursing (IJHN) will again offer a Sexual Assault Forensic Nurse Examiner Adult Curriculum Training Program March 14-18 at the JHUSON.
The 40-hour training seminar is specifically designed for registered nurses (RNs) interested in becoming Forensic Nurse Examiners (FNEs). "A large percentage of the nurses throughout Maryland who are doing sexual assault evidence exams have been trained through one of the previous Hopkins sessions," notes associate professorDaniel Sheridan
, PhD, RN, FNE-A, SANE-A, FAAN.
Based on recommendations by the International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN) an additional 40-hour clinical component is required before FNE certification is obtained, in addition to this 40-hour classroom session. Sheridan works with FNE training participants to place them in clinical sites near their homes.
The sexual assault seminar is made possible by a grant from theMaryland Governor's Office of Crime Control and Prevention
