I noticed that Pitt has an ACNP program with an emphasis on trauma/emergency preparedness. Does anyone know of anything similar in the south? I'm really interested in getting into FEMA, disaster preparedness type work but do not want to mobe up north for schooling, I can't handle all that snow.

This is new to me... I am not familiar with programs that offer an emphasis in trauma/emergency preparedness. If anyone has any info on this (ex: role of the NP, work setting, etc.), it would be greatly appreciated! The Pitt site did not include much info and I was unable to find such an emphasis on the Vanderbilt site.

Thanks!

It's not there per se.

Vandy's School of Nursing houses the National Center for Emergency Preparedness. You enter the ACNP program, as at Pitt, the clinical director will design the program for you.

I had an ANP buddy with me that spent an entire year as a post-grad fellow in the NCEP. She flew everywhere, designed all kinds of programs and even lectured to local agencies. Not sure if she's working in DP, but I know she did enjoy that year!

Go to VSN's web site. Note in the bottom right corner.

It sounds lucrative to say the least. I don't know why you'd have to go through ACNP to be considered well versed in Emergency Preparedness. We manage this pretty well in the military with a huge skills mix – very few of which are ACNP – like none.

Thanks CRF250Xpert. What is the title of this position in the military?
