About the Author:

When Jen Tran, RN, SANE, began considering career options, she originally thought she wanted to be in law enforcement. It was during an internship at the Omaha Police Department that she found and fell in love with Forensic Nursing. Becoming a SANE (Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner) seemed like the best way to put her passion for the law and drive to care for others to good use.

"My patient care mission would be to try to make each survivor feel heard, cared for, and in control," said Jen. "There are so many ways survivors may respond after such a traumatic event, that each case may look different. But I hope they leave our care feeling that a piece of the weight was lifted off their shoulders."

As Coordinator of the Methodist SANE/SART Program, Jen says she is inspired every day by the passion and tirelessness of her fellow Methodist SANE nurses. She is also also inspired by the community and the way everyone pulls together to try to put an end to sexual assault and domestic violence. 

In her spare time, Jen enjoys spending time with her husband and three kids. That usually means on a field or court, but she loves sports and her children play. In the few moments she has to herself, you can usually find her at the gym or watching Fixer Upper.
