This online learning program was available to SANE NURSES.

FREE Online Adult and Adolescent SANE-Didactic Plus Initial Clinical Training

The selection process for the new interactive, self-directed online and clinical course which meets the initial requirements of the International Association of Forensic Nurses requirements is well under way.

The course, SANE-SART Online+Clinical, will combine interactive simulations, webinars and onsite clinical training for the medical professional. The comprehensive course will be available to all members of the Sexual Assault Response Team including law enforcement, victim advocates, social workers, prosecutors and crime lab personnel.

Upon successful completion, RN’s with a current, valid license will receive 40 approved continuing nursing education contact hours for the online learning and 16 additional continuing education hours if selected for the onsite clinical training. All other disciplines will receive continuing education credits of up to 40 hours upon completion of the training course, and law enforcement will receive up to 40 POST Credits approved.

Combined with the onsite clinical facet, SANE-SART Online+Clinical’s unique interactive online components will enable a nurse to learn and practice SANE-A skills literally by “doing” at her or his own speed.

Dr. Linda Ledray, RN, PhD, SANE-A and FAAN, is the lead subject matter expert in the course’s development. Among many other accomplishments in the field of sexual assault response, she is the founder and director of the Sexual Assault Resource Service in Minneapolis, MN—one of the first SANE programs and is currently the Director of the SANE-SART Resource Service.

According to Dr. Ledray, SANE-SART Online+Clinical “will immerse learners in real-life clinical, legal and victim support situations in which they are challenged to learn by doing and to learn by making mistakes. Through this adult learning process, each SANE learner will be able to develop and demonstrate mastery of SANE-A knowledge and skills, both for clinical practice and courtroom trial.”

Dr. Ledray said the program is primarily directed to nurses without previous SANE training in rural and tribal audiences, where access to training is more limited, but audiences in any location will be welcome to enroll.

While the online Adult/Adolescent Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner training is not directly tied to SANE-A® certification, it is our goal that all RN’s who complete all 56 hours of the course will apply for SANE-A® certification. Full completion of the course is no guarantee that any examinee will achieve a passing score on the SANE-A® certification examination—particularly if the candidate does not meet the eligibility criteria. As a policy, IAFN does not grant any direct or implied endorsement or pre-approval for any specific 40-hour SANE training. Currently, the Forensic Nursing Certification Board (FNCB) makes such a determination only during a potential examinee’s application review process.

SANE-SART Online+Clinical is produced by Kinetic Learning, Inc., and is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, National Institute of Justice to the National Clearinghouse for Science, Technology and the Law at Stetson University College of Law.
