    I am a Registered Nurse seeking to become involved in advocacy for victims of domestic violence. I have a BSN and currently enrolled in a DNP family nurse practitioner program at Fairfield University where I am also undertaking a project to bring domestic violence education into the nursing program. This is an area I feel very strongly about and want to be able to volunteer in any capacity to advocating for victims.

    I am emailing from Napa County District Attorney’s office, I would like to hold two spots for the Online Domestic & Sexual Violence Certification Training and pay by check. My office has certain requirements we have to follow to pay for online trainings. Who can I speak with about this? Thank you.-Fay Hartje
