#57 – It takes a special kind of nurse to work with victims of sexual assault. I had the honor of interviewing one of these very special nurses, Maie McKenzie. Marie has used her training in Forensic Nursing and as a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) in both the Emergency Department and community rape crisis centers.
In today’s episode, Marie talks with us about:
- What inspired her to work in forensic nursing and specifically as a Sexual Assault Examiner
- The didactic training program she went through
- What this job entails
- How to be a SANE
- Her legal nurse consulting business
