The Association of Public Health Nurses has released an updated position paper entitled “The Role of the Public Health Nurse In Disaster Preparedness, Response, and Recovery.” The paper offers guidance for the roles that public health nurses can play in preparedness, response, and recovery operations in their communities. It provides suggestions for how public health nurses can contribute throughout the disaster life cycle, as well as resource linkages. Review the paper for more information about how public health nurses can continue to conduct critical work during a disaster and how they can aid their communities in the recovery process.
