Forensic Nurse's Week November 5-9
November 6, 2018
BY JACQUELINE BURGESS
This week has been designated by the International Association of Forensic Nurses as National Forensic Nurse's Week. We are so pleased that we have our own IAFN trained nurse, April Anthony, on staff. April has been specially trained to perform child sexual abuse examinations. Her job is never easy but she does it with such grace and dignity, and we are beyond happy to have her. If you are not familiar with what forensic nursing is, I encourage you to take a look at IAFN's website at www.forensicnurses.org.
It is also our greatest pleasure to be working in conjunction with Vikki Vodosia, a longtime SANE-P nurse who was critical in our establishing a medical program. Her insight, guidance, and advice has brought us to the place we are now. She continues to travel the country assisting other CAC's in starting medical programs, and the world is truly a better place because of her!
Thank you Vikki and April for your service to the children of our communities!
