Designing and Integrating a Disaster Preparedness Curriculum: Readying Nurses for the Worst

Disaster incidents are on the rise. From natural disasters to war and conflict to infectious diseases, being prepared takes tremendous training and practice. Nurses are on the front lines of disaster relief and care, but too few are trained in disaster preparedness, response, and recovery.

Disaster incidents are on the rise. From natural disasters to war and conflict to infectious diseases, being prepared takes tremendous training and practice. Nurses are on the front lines of disaster relief and care, but too few are trained in disaster preparedness, response, and recovery. Also, too few nurse faculty have personal, real-world experience in responding to natural and man-made disasters.

So, where to start? How do faculty members fit one more topic into a nursing course or curriculum? And how do nurses stay on top of their game when it comes to disaster and emergency preparedness?

Designing and Integrating a Disaster Preparedness Curriculum: Readying Nurses for the Worst presents a curriculum blueprint for nurse educators that provides readers with best practices for implementation while avoiding pitfalls and mistakes. Disaster preparation experts Sharon Stanley and Thola Wolanski help ensure that nursing students are prepared to respond to disasters, whether in their own neighborhoods or around the world, by giving nurse educators strategies and solutions for incorporating disaster preparedness into their curricula.
