The Advanced Nursing Education - Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (ANE-SANE) Program provides grants to increase the number of registered nurses, advanced practice registered nurses, and forensic nurses trained and certified as sexual assault nurse examiners, with a preference for projects that will substantially benefit rural or underserved populations or help meet public health nursing needs in state or local health departments.

Program objectives include:

  • Financially support participants/trainees through their SANE certification requirements which, at a minimum, include didactic education, clinical training, and experiential learning
  • Develop academic-practice partnerships, including collaboration with HRSA-supported health centers and critical shortage facilities. These partnerships should promote recruitment of participants/trainees, interagency collaboration, and integrate trauma-informed, evidence-based sexual assault and domestic violence services into training and practice settings.
  • Incorporate innovative models of training and practice, including virtual, tele-education models, telehealth, and sexual assault response teams (SARTs) to ensure flexible options for learning and practice.
  • Reduce system-level and structural barriers to SANE training and practice through collaborative partnerships and technical assistance consultation
