I apologize if this thread is repetitive, but I am getting kind of tangled up in websearches and other stuff and am hoping someone can help direct me.
I am about halfway through my BSN set to graduate in December of next year, I live in the Seattle/Tacoma WA area (US) and I am trying to find out any info I can about how to become a SANE. Do I have to get a masters degree? Can I be a SANE with a BSN? There are no brick and mortar forensic nursing certificate or degree programs anywhere near me, maybe not even in the entire state? I am looking at online programs, and there seem to be plenty of them, but how do you determine if the program is legit/reputable. Kaplan University is the one that ALWAYS pops up first. I have no idea how to even research the quality of online programs. I have an info request out for an online program at John's Hopkins, but of course I am trying to find more than one program, so that I have options should it not work out for me.
Any links, tips suggestions, search strategies would be so much appreciated.
