School Emergency Triage Training (SETT)

SETT School Emergency Triage Training

What is SETT?

SETT is an online program written for registered nurses employed in the specialty of school nursing. 

The purpose of SETT is to provide school nurses with the knowledge, skills and training resources to lead school-based Disaster Response Teams and perform triage in response to mass casualty incident (MCI) events.  

The SETT live program is currently unavailable. Based on NASN's practices, all programs are reviewed on a routine basis to ensure most current evidence is incorporated.

Why do school nurses need SETT?

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. 

The National Association of School Nurses is accredited as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.
