Update to required training for Sexual and Domestic Violence Prevention

Update to required training for Sexual and Domestic Violence Prevention   (November 7, 2018) Full notice, click here.

To: Massachusetts Nursing and Professional Healthcare Organizations 

From: Board of Registration in Nursing


The Board of Registration in Nursing (Board) continues to receive many calls regarding the issue of complying with the law that requires training for health care providers on the issue of domestic and sexual violence as a condition of licensure (M.G.L. c. 112, § 264). 

 

DPH’s Division of Sexual and Domestic Violence Prevention and Services has developed a training that meets the requirements for licensure.  This e-Learning tool can be accessed from DPH’s Domestic and Sexual Violence Integration Initiatives web page.

 

The Board will not hold a nurse responsible for the required training until it is available. Nurses who renew after November 7, 2018 will have an additional six months from the date of license renewal to complete the training.  Nurses who have renewed prior to the release of the training must complete the training prior to their next license renewal.

 

A nurse participating in a currently approved in-person training program will be considered to have met the requirement and does not need to take the online course by DPH. Refer to DPH’s Domestic and Sexual Violence Integration Initiatives for training approval updates
