This course is part of a grant-funded program at Duquesne University to provide advanced nurse education to increase the number of Registered Nurses (RNs), Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) and Forensic Nurses (FNs) who are trained and certified as sexual assault nurse examiners (SANEs) in communities on a local, regional and/or state level, focusing on increasing service to rural and medically underserved areas (MUAs). As a recipient of this grant, Duquesne University School of Nursing is able to offer scholarship opportunities to nurses interested in pursuing IAFN SANE certification. During this class, nurses will experience hands-on preceptorship with experienced SANEs to prepare them to return to their areas of clinical practice. The course includes an opportunity for each nurse enrolled to practice a mock exam on a professional, live standardized patient who has been trained to portray a sexual assault scenario and undergo a full sexual assault exam. Learn more about the standardized patients we work with: This course serves as the "preceptorship" portion of the national certification offered through IAFN (International Association of Forensic Nurses). All training is consistent with the standards of practice as defined by the IAFN. Upon completion of the Clinical Preceptor Course, enrolled nurses are entered into a mentorship program in which they have access to expert SANE case review, education, and supervision during the remainder of 300 SANE-related clinical hours they serve at their practicing institute or hospital via secure videoconferencing. A 3 week review course will follow to help prepare nurses to take the certification exam.
