Abstract

ABSTRACT: National and global disasters require immense resources, including nurses. Personal, professional, and spiritual preparation is strongly recommended for healthcare workers who desire to serve in disaster settings. Most nurses are underprepared for this role; options for preparation are described along with the ministry of nursing and spiritual care that expresses God's heart of mercy and care for hurting and desperate people.
