HRSA: Advanced Nursing Education � Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (ANE-SANE) Program HRSA-21-016

The ANE-SANE program funds advanced nursing education to train and certify Registered Nurses (RNs), Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs), and Forensic Nurses (FNs) to practice as sexual assault nurse examiners (SANEs).

The program aims to increase the supply and distribution of qualified working SANEs and expand access to sexual assault forensic examinations.
By expanding access to SANEs, the ANE-SANE program aims to provide better physical and mental health care for survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence leading to better evidence collection and potentially higher prosecution rates.

To accomplish the goals, ANE-SANE projects will:1. Financially support participants/trainees through their SANE certification requirements which, at a minimum, include: didactic (classroom or online) education, clinical training, and experiential learning (or practice). 2. 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.

This program will build upon HHS and HRSA�s current strategic goals to strengthen and expand the health care workforce to meet America�s diverse needs, and improve access to quality health care services. It is expected that applicants will address the first priority, Transforming the workforce by targeting the need, and if applicable, the second priority, Strengthening health care access through telehealth.

UofSC can only submit one application to this competition.

Please submit a two-page summary of your program�s objectives and goals � noting how the HRSA priorities would be addressed, along with a 2-page CV of the Project Director/PI, as a single PDF file to Richard White ( by 5 pm on Thursday, January 14.
