Weeken lecture:

 Natural and man-made disasters have been increasing while the populations impacted by these disasters have also been increasing (Hoeppe, 2016). Across all levels of nursing, emergency preparedness training and education are now recognized as a critical skill and each nurse has the responsibility to understand the health impact of disaster events and the nurses’ role in responding. DNP scholars often hold positions within the emergency management plan or oversee the compliance of emergency management training. In these roles, DNP scholars communicate and collaborate with external agencies responsible for working with vulnerable populations during an emergency.  Natural and man-made disasters have been increasing while the populations impacted by these disasters have also been increasing (Hoeppe, 2016).
