Awarded first place in the 2013 AJN Book of the Year Awards in the Environmental Health category, and second place in the Community-Public Health category

What a wonderful resource!"--Doody's Medical Reviews

"In this third editionÖDr. Veenema continues her mission to help our nation's nurses develop the knowledge and skills needed to efficiently and effectively respond to disasters.ÖMany times nurses assume that they aren't emergency responders, so they don't need to understand how the system works. When a disaster strikes a communityówhether it's a bus accident, a tornado, a hurricane or terrorist attackónurses will be on the front lines helping those who are in need. To protect themselves, their families and their communities, nurses need to understand the principles and content of this comprehensive textbook. I encourage all nurses to develop the knowledge and skills presented here that are needed to achieve the vision of resilient communities outlined in the National Health Security Strategy."

From the Foreword by Ann R. Knebel, RN, DNSc, FAAN
Deputy Director with the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response

"The third edition of Disaster Nursing and Emergency Preparedness was confronted with the daunting task of both summarizing the many important new findings that have now become available through extensive research and the experience of public health practitioners and yet maintain the convenience and user-friendliness of the first two editions. Dr. Veenema has succeeded in accomplishing this magnificently. The third edition Ö has almost double the number of pages compared with the first edition, including a much stronger and expanded clinical management section to address clinical situations not frequently encountered by nurses...The reader is provided with substantially greater coverage of the needs of children and adolescents following the recommendations of the National Commission on Children and Disasters (2010)...[This book] will continue to serve as both a timely and comprehensive text for this nation's 2.7 million nurses and for educating the next generation of nursing professionals."

From the Foreword by Eric K. Noji, MD, MPH
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Ret.)
Washington, DC

"The contributing authors read like "Who's Who" of the disaster leaders. They lend their special expertise and insights which are supported and elucidated by cogent learning strategies in the use of case studies, side bars, student questions, and packed content in all areas of disaster participation, preparedness, policies, and research. Many teachers, students, practitioners, and policy makers will find this edition a treasure trove of new information, ideas and ideologies and will use this volume as a text, a reference, and resource for the challenging work they do in disaster preparedness and practice. For over ten years [this book]has been the Hallmark Text in its field and this edition proves to be the best ever."

From the Foreword by Loretta C. Ford, RN, PNP, EdD
Dean Emeritus
University of Rochester School of Nursing

"It is my hope that all schools of nursing will use this book as part of a disaster preparedness curriculum and that all nurses will become familiar with its contentsand inspired to volunteer when disaster strikes. Disaster victims and their families deserve nothing less from our nation's nurses."

Each chapter is clearly formatted and includes Key Messages and Learning Objectives.
