All-Hazards Emergency Operations

Emergency Operations Guidelines

These emergency operations guidelines for boards of nursing are designed to assist boards of nursing in developing a rapid-response approach that allows for fluid continuity of core business operations in the event of a catastrophe. This guide outlines how information is gathered, channeled and assessed, when decisions are made and communicated and what essential operations are to be maintained.

Nursys E-Notify Emergency Responder Service

The Nursys E-Notify service allows approved emergency response organizations the ability to verify nurse licenses in bulk, free of charge during a declared all hazards event. When a national emergency is declared in a state it is often necessary to mobilize nursing professionals to lend a hand. With this service, emergency response organizations can confirm the licensure status of any nurse from a Emergency Responder participating board of nursing who offers assistance during an emergency in a quick and efficient manner.
