ROLE OF A NURSE IN DISASTER PREPAREDNESS AND RESPONSE Disaster Preparedness and Response Disaster preparedness and response are the measures taken to prepare for a disaster and the response to be made during the emergency to reduce the effects and damages that may occur. The role of nurses in disaster preparedness and response According to Weeks (2019), during disasters, many people tend to seek treatment at hospitals for their symptoms and ailments. Nurses are always perceived to be the first receivers in any hospital setting, especially as primary aid caretakers. The role during such a situation would be to conduct an assessment to identify the needs of the patients, by providing adequate care to the injured to save their lives . Offering physical support to the injured and providing counseling and guidance to the affected families as well. However, nurses also participate in evacuations and conducting screening activities and disease surveillance that would help to improve the health and the well being of the community at large ( Weeks, 2019).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
