The nurse is often a first responder in a natural or man-made disaster. It is therefore important to understand the role of a nurse, the chain of command, the communication protocol, and the available resources for handling an incident.
For this task you should complete the simulation “Disaster in Franklin Country” (found in the web link below). The simulation takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour to complete. You should take notes on the roles of a disaster team, the chain of command, the communication protocol, and the available resources.
