SANE-A Training for Nurses and Medical Staff

These trainings are for nurses and medical staff doing forensic collections. The class is to become SANE educated but does not make someone SANE certified. It is a base level training and then more study, education, and practice is needed to sit for the SANE-A certification exam. Our goal in Idaho is to ensure that every nurse doing sexual assault evidence collection and treatment has been through the basic 40-hour course. Please register ASAP if you are interested! To register, contract trainer Deb Wetherelt at or 208-884-7286.
