Nursing Contact hours have been approved by the Alaska Nurses Association for 20.1 hours online and 23.5 hours face to face.

Training Overview Description

ACFTA will provide communities with forensically trained nurses and medical providers to respond to any victim reporting trauma and/or violence in Alaska.

  • Each victim of violence deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, and to have evidence of the crimes committed against them preserved for future prosecution.
  • Unfortunately, many areas of the state lack the ability to document and collect medical evidence to help protect victims of crime.
  • Forensic evidence collection requires the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities to do so from the onset of patient care.
  • ACFTA offers nurses and medical providers, across the state, training to ensure trauma informed care for victims of violence which will ultimately promote justice for all victims in Alaska.
