Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action promotes the field of Disaster Nursing

The Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action has posted two compelling articles and a must-see YouTube video featuring Tener Goodwin Veenema, Phd, RN FAAN, an expert on disaster nursing and co-founder of the Society for the Advancement of Disaster Nursing. Dr Veenema is also prominently mentioned in both articles.

The Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action is funded by American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) Foundation, AARP, and The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJ) to advance the field of nursing based on the recommendations contained in the Institute of Medicine Futue of Nursing Report.
