Approved SANE Courses
The courses listed below have undergone IAFN's rigorous approval process and have been officially approved as being in compliance with the most current edition of the IAFN SANE Education Guidelines. These are the only courses officially approved by the International Association of Forensic Nurses.
While we're all working to achieve standardization, the course approval process is not mandated or required. It is the student’s responsibility to verify that the course meets her/his needs as a forensic examiner, including all state/jurisdictional requirements.
If your course is not listed above and you plan or expect to sit for the SANE-A® or SANE-P® certification exam in the future, the course you attend must cover all content identified in the SANE Education Guidelines
It is highly recommended that you review the eligibility criteria established by the Commission for Forensic Nursing Certification to confirm that the course you select meets the eligibility criteria for you to sit for the exam. The eligibility criteria can be found in the SANE Certification Examination Handbook.
