[ENA Annual Conference - Evidence-based Practice Presentation]
Purpose: Whether they are naturally occurring, caused by environmental forces, or generated by humans, disasters have placed extraordinary stresses on society. Healthcare professionals, such as nurses, who are knowledgeable and trained in disaster management, are needed to provide competent care to victims. The purpose of the presentation is to demonstrate how an online teaching format was used to educate nurses and first-degree baccalaureate nursing students on disaster management.

Design: This project utilized an online format to deliver an elective nursing course on nursing disaster management.

Setting: This project was developed and implemented by the author at a state university baccalaureate nursing program.

Participants/Subjects: Participants in the course were registered nurses enrolled in a baccalaureate degree program, or first-degree baccalaureate students concurrently enrolled in clinical courses. All students took the course as an elective.

Methods: The course used online modules, assigned textbook readings, weekly discussion boards, a pre-test and post-test to measure knowledge gained, and a comprehensive reflective paper.

Results/Outcomes: All of the course participants achieved NIMS Certification through FEMA during the course, and a certificate of recognition from Homeland Security upon completion.

Implications: This project was implemented in a university setting, but could be replicated by emergency nurse educators, leaders, and managers to provide nursing disaster management education utilizing an online format. The format and course content could be modified to address specific educational needs of nursing and emergency staff.
