Modifiable Factors Impeding Nurses’ Willingness to Report in a Disaster
Hutchison, K. (2017). Modifiable Factors Impeding Nurses’ Willingness to Report in a Disaster. University of Arkansas.
This resource discusses a survey of 313 nurses and nursing students from across the United States that assessed ability and willingness to report to work during a disaster. Results indicated that: respondents were least likely to report following a radiological/nuclear event; the majority do not have personal preparedness plans; and feeling prepared to respond and supported by their workplace (e.g., safe environment; adequate staffing overall) positively impacted willingness to work.
