These virtual courses are available 24/7 to all CalSAFE members. California BRN CEU credit is available for CalSAFE Membership Plus and Associate Members. CalSAFE membership is limited to medical professional (RN, NP, PA, MD) and membership will need to be approved before access to the online modules will be granted. Please visit the CalSAFE website for membership information.

These courses contain innovative, state-of-the-art, science based curriculum and are designed to meet the National Children's Alliance CAC Accreditation Standard for Medical Providers as well as the International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN) SANE-A and SANE-P certification. These courses were made possible through a generous partnership with the University of San Francisco School of Nursing and their SAFERR project funded by a HRSA grant with a goal of increasing the number of qualified sexual assault examiners throughout California.

We are a work in progress! We would appreciate your thoughtful evaluations after each module as well as on the Post Course Survey as we continue to build our various course offerings.
