The Indiana SANE Training Project is a grant funded program, awarded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (“HRSA”). The Advanced Nursing Education-Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (“ANE-SANE”) funding aims to provide advanced nursing education to increase the number of Registered Nurses (RNs), Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) and Forensic Nurses who are trained and certified as Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANEs) in communities on a local, regional and/or state level.
The Indiana SANE Training Project is hosted by the College of Nursing and Health Professionals at the University of Southern Indiana along with the Southwest Indiana Area Health Education Center (SWI-AHEC).
The Indiana SANE Training Project is supported by a Project Advisory Council, that includes members representing the Indiana State Department of Health, Indiana State Police Crime Lab, Indiana Department of Child Services, Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys Council, Indiana Emergency Nurses Association, Indiana Coalition to End Sexual Assault, Indiana Hospital Association, Indiana AHEC Network, law enforcement, rape crisis centers and sexual assault nurse examiners.
Financial assistance is available for training, professional development opportunities, certification and re-certification fees. Applications will be reviewed and receive a response within one week.
As there are many funding opportunities available we do accept rolling applications.
Some trainings and events may have an application deadline. Contact the Program Coordinator for that information.
