SANE Program

The SANE Program provides technical assistance and support to SANE/SAEs, clinics and hospitals across the state of Oregon. SANEs are registered nurses with specialized training and clinical experience in providing forensic examinations of sexual assault victims. SANE/SAEs are part of a larger coordinated response to sexual assault and therefore often work closely with law enforcement officers, forensic lab staff, child protective services, prosecutors, sexual assault advocates, and crisis programs.

If you would like to verify the certification status of a SANE/SAE or receive a list of currently state-certified SANE/SAEs, please e-mail
