This course focuses on the holistic treatment of the child, building on the strengths of foundational nursing education to enable the PSANE to obtain and document a patient history and physical examination, to recognize and document child abuse injuries, and to implement a treatment and discharge plan incorporating nursing diagnosis.

NOTE: If you are a nurse who is planning on taking Medical Training Academy: Pediatric/Adolescent Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Course (PSANE), please be aware that you MUST take the PSANE course prior to the general MTA course in order to meet IAFN rules. According to IAFN, a pediatric/adolescent SANE course must be at least 40 consecutive hours of required content. Because both courses share some content, if you take the general MTA course prior to the PSANE course, you would not be able to count the duplicative content and therefore, any duplicative content would be considered null for ANCC credit and for counting towards your 40 hours of required SANE content. For further questions, please contact Kim Martinez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
No refunds can be granted once you begin the course.
