Course Description: "The Role of Nursing and Public Health During Times of War and Terrorism" is a 2-hour videotape of the May 2, 2002 satellite broadcast conducted by the U.S. Public Health Service of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The events of September 11, 2001 and later forced all Americans to deal with the realities of terrorist and bioterrorist attacks.

In response, health professionals everywhere developed a renewed sense of urgency for advanced and comprehensive education regarding the public health response. Nurses and other health professionals must refine current plans and when necessary, develop new plans for a coordinated, integrated, and appropriate response to future threats and actions. This program addresses historical and local, state, national, and international public health initiatives in the ongoing war against terrorism and bioterrorism. Copies of the videotape will be available in June.
