Abstract

This article provides an update on the progress of the "Call to Action: Nurses as Leaders in Disaster Preparedness and Response." A steering committee, initiated, directed, and supported by the Veterans Emergency Management Evaluation Center of the US Department of Veterans Affairs, has undertaken the work of bringing together subject matter experts to develop a vision for the future of disaster nursing. The ultimate goal is to ensure that every nurse is a prepared nurse. As one result of this work, the Society for the Advancement of Disaster Nursing has held its inaugural meeting in December 2016.
