Disaster Education


The purpose of the (C3DC) Program is to offer continuing education for registered nurses who want to gain knowledge, understanding and judgment to minimize health hazards and life-threatening issues to vulnerable populations during the disaster cycle. The program will provide strategies addressing the four phases of a disaster to enable nurses to facilitate and work effectively as members of a team to manage both the physical and psychological impacts of disasters on vulnerable populations.
