Abstract

The Vanderbilt University School of Nursing has taken a leadership role with the establishment of the International Nursing Coalition for Mass Casualty Education (INCMCE). This coalition consists of organizational representatives of schools, accrediting bodies, specialty organizations and governmental agencies interested in promoting mass casualty education for nurses. Several grants have been obtained to develop an online curriculum that addresses the competencies as developed by the INCMCE members for all nurses. Four of the six proposed modules have been developed and are currently in use. This demonstration will showcase the educational informatics strategies used to enhance the mastery of the INCMCE competencies.
