Sandy developed a model for the use of Nurse Practitioners in the immediate post-disaster period following a hurricane. It is a collaborative model among the VNA, Martin County Fire Rescue, Martin Memorial Hospital, and Martin County Health Department’s Medical Reserve Corps. The purpose of the poster presentation is to provide a visual depiction of the model’s development and the impact it will have on the community, on nursing, and specifically on the role of Nurse Practitioner education, training, and work experience. It was presented at the University of Florida Research Day and earned a ribbon for second place.
