Study for the SANE Examination

The Association has resources to help you prepare for the certification examinations. The test content outline and the references, which are listed below and in the current Certification Examination Handbook, are great starting points for your study plan.

Other resources may be posted on the IAFN Event Calendar or offered through the IAFN Education department, the Online Learning Center,

The SANE certification programs are governed by the Commission for Forensic Nursing Certification (CFNC), an independent certifying body of IAFN. In adherence to best practices for certifying bodies, CFNC volunteers and staff are not involved in the development of any preparatory program, and the CFNC does not endorse any preparatory program. The CFNC and its staff are solely responsible for the policies and administration of the SANE certification programs, including establishing application deadlines and qualification requirements.

Preparing for Computer-Based Testing

To familiarize yourself with the computer-based testing, Scantron offers a free, online sample test. Access the online sample test and view the testing instructions anytime, anywhere, through any computer that has Internet access. The demonstration is not intended to be a review of the SANE-A® or SANE-P® examination content.
