We are dedicated to providing the highest quality victim services and believe that sharing education and resources is a crucial step along that path. The majority of our SANE trainings are open to all nurses, in-state, out-of-state, SANE and non-SANE to encourage consistent, trauma-informed responses to victims of sexual assault. If you are interested in learning more about being, becoming, working with, or supporting a SANE or if you just want to learn more come to a training to expand your knowledge and network with NH’s dedicated SANE community. 

Successful completion of all SANE Program trainings requires that you attend the entire training, sign the attendance sheet, and complete an evaluation. Contact hours will be awarded once all of these requirements are met. 

Registration for all quarterly review days is required because space is limited.  If you do not have the opportunity to register prior to an event please contact Christina Presenti (contact information below) at least 24 hours prior to the training to ensure that space is available.

NHCADSV is an approved provider unit of continuing nursing education by the Northeast Multistate Division, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.

If you are interested in hosting any regularly scheduled SANE trainings please contact Christina. We are constantly looking to diversify our training locations.
