Amesha Diyunuge CRJ 200: Theories of Crime 15 February 2019 Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner One out of every six American women have been a victim of rape or attempted rape and about three percent or one in thirty- three of men have experienced rape or attempted rape. Child Protective Services agencies stated every year 63,000 children are victims of sexual abuse. In Illinois, there are currently 196, 000 nurses but only 32 are certified to treat sexual assault victims. Three years ago, the Illinois attorney general's office hired an emergency nurse, Jacklyn Rodriguez to train more nurses as IAFN- certified Sexual Assault Nurses Examiners throughout the state. She estimated that 150 nurses underwent 40 hours of required training with only 32 having completed the IAFN exam. Only 12 of the nurses are SANE nurses specializing in treating children.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
