Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners

From the statistics I read about, the majority of sexual assaults are perpetrated by males upon females, and unfortunately many go unreported. I have never understood the reasons how or why this violent part of humanity takes place or other forms of violence for that matter, but that’s how my mind works – I guess its part of my utopian brain. In any event, as a male nursing student I wonder how and if I would be able to help a female sexual assault patient since the likelihood of a male perpetrating her crime is very high. Would I be permitted to help, or would the female patient’s condition be compromised since I am a man? Are most SANEs female for this very reason? Just some questions from a guy nursing student that would like to help these patients if it’s possible.
