"Recent events have brought renewed national attention to the long-standing issue of sexual violence. Survivors of sexual assault have been deprived of dignity and control over their own bodies. Without treatment, sexual assault can lead to long-term health consequences, making this a genuine medical issue," said Jennifer Bishara, BSN, RN, SANE/SAFE Coordinator/Assistant Nurse Manager. "The nurses in the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Program provide the highest standard of compassionate care to survivors of sexual assault. Our patients leave with a sense of empowerment, knowing that they are believed, which is vital to the healing process."
