SANE-A pass rate?

By Melissa O'Brien posted 09-15-2016 07:57 AM


Does anyone know what the pass/fail rate is for the SANE-A exam? Does anyone have any advice or study suggestions for the exam? Is there a content area that is more prevalent than other areas? I take mine on 9/29! Thanks in advance!

I believe they communicated in one session at the conference this past week that the pass rate is 52%.

I wish you the best of luck!

Take care,

I do not know the pass/fail rate of the SANE-A examination. However, to study, I followed the SANE-A Test Content Outline and SANE-A reference list that are posted on the IAFN website under the tab titled "Study for the SANE Examination" . The articles that I found most helpful were: A National Protocol for Sexual Assault Medical Forensic Examinations; Post Exposure Prophylaxis to Prevent HIV Infection; Guidelines for the Management of Sexually Transmitted Infections. I read through ALL of the articles in the reference list at least two times. Best of luck!
