Disaster Nursing Preparation. Report of a Pilot Project Conducted in Four Schools of Nursing and One Hospital Nursing Service.
Neal, Mary V.
The project was designed to investigate and demonstrate the ways by which students of nursing and personnel in hospital nursing services can be prepared to cope with disaster problems as well as additional activities that impinge on medical practice. The demonstration projects were made possible through subcontracts with four institutions which indicated to the National League for Nursing their interest in developing disaster nursing content for their nursing programs. Essential content and suggested methods were identified by the Project Conference Group, and each institution provided for the preparation of its own faculty. The programs of Massachusetts General Hospital School of Nursing, University of Minnesota School of Nursing, Skidmore College Department of Nursing, Columbia University Teachers College Department of Nursing Education, and the nursing service of the Massachusetts General Hospital are described in detail. The National League for Nursing comprehensive achievement test in disaster nursing is explained and the results of its use in a study of students with and without disaster nursing instruction is reported.
