Giving Back to Move Forward: Linking Nursing Faculty Practice to Disaster Preparedness

Abstract

Purpose: The effectiveness of a response to a public health emergency or natural disaster is essentially dependent on nurses. The purpose of this presentation is to show the link of nursing faculty practice to a response of a public health disaster.

Objectives: The participant will be able to describe (a) skills gained or maintained related to faculty practice, (b) how the skills can be influential during disastrous events, (c) how the nurse’s response to disaster can be implemented in classroom and clinical teaching, and (d) methods to reevaluate processes to link faculty practice with disaster preparedness.

Content Description: Emphasis is placed on the development of a policy to educate nursing faculty for disaster preparedness within a school of nursing. Qualities of practicing faculty are presented as vital resources in the provision of care for survivors during a disaster. Essential skills for providing care to the collegiate population will be covered. The relation between the clinical skills of a faculty member and student survivors is discussed. The presentation will conclude with the emergence of guidance to preparation of a response plan of nursing faculty to public health disasters. 

Recommendations: Nursing faculty should practice in a clinical setting to maintain essential skills. The skills acquired and maintained during practice can be linked to positive outcomes in public health disaster. Faculty are likely to be first responders in an area populated with college students. A faculty practice is critical to developing, refining, and maintaining skills to successfully implement treatment for survivors of disasters.  Traditional faculty practice roles may warrant adjustment to focus on the needs of the student population related to disasters. In turn, these altered roles should influence the creation of emergency and natural disaster polices in nursing schools.
