Cornerstone of Cultural Competency During the Disaster Cycle
THERE IS NO FEE FOR THIS PROGRAM
To offer continuing education for registered nurses who possess the knowledge, understanding and judgment to minimize health hazards and life-threatening issues to vulnerable populations during the disaster cycle.

The Program is delivered through online presentations on best practices of emergency preparedness and disaster management.
