Creating an Organization of Volunteer Nurses
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003

Title:Educator
After the September 11th terrorist events in the United States and the subsequent threats of biological war, organizing a group of volunteer nurses seemed to be an appropriate way to serve communities in disaster. Health consequences are imminent and the need of trained professionals is essential for identification, rapid assessment, ongoing monitoring and surveillance activities, before, during and after a disaster. A group of volunteer nurses was organized to be trained and prepared to assume leadership in the event of a disaster of this magnitude in Puerto Rico. Many challenging leadership activities integrated effective communication skills with the streamlining of volunteer recruitment and community service partnerships. The plan was divided in phases using the Lewin’s Field Theory and it will be implemented from January to June 2003. Expected outcomes include, identification and recruitment of volunteer nurses for disaster training, integration of nurses’ services into the general state strategic disaster plan and the coordination of continuing education program in disaster awareness, preparedness and relief efforts. A coalition of volunteer nurses will impact the visibility of nurses who want to be involved in issues that are affecting our communities today and lobby institutions and government for significant long term contributions.
