The nursing speciality of forensic nursing involves caring for victims and perpetrators of crime while attempting to collect forensic evidence on the circumstances surrounding the incident, acting as part of the legal system while nursing.[1][2]

The International Association of Forensic Nurses currently offers two professional certifications under its Forensic Nursing Certification Board (FNCB) for Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners: the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner - Adult/Adolescent (SANE-A) and the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner - Paediatric (SANE-P).
