Effective management of school emergencies where there are mass casualties requires careful training, preparation, and planning to maximize effectiveness under less than optimal conditions. The school nurse coordinates the collection of information from a variety of sources to develop emergency plans. Emergency response plans require coordination with school administrators, staff, and other community first responders. This program equips the school nurse with knowledge to develop and lead school First-Aid teams.
