Nursing Supercourse will serve as educational model for instructors at schools of nursing to ensure effective training of nurses worldwide in disaster management based on the competencies proposed by the World Health Organization. These competencies give a clear picture on the skills that are essential when preparing nurses for disaster management. Capacity building is the core of disaster management. Training of nurses can have significant impact on the degree of harm inflicted by disasters. Training will also expand the scope of practice and augment the role of other healthcare workers.


Nursing Supercourse will also establish a solid foundation for building a global network of nurses before the disaster occurs, which would lead to much better coordination.
