ABSTRACT

This paper aims to investigate experience, awareness and preparedness of disaster among nursing college students in Korea and to provide the basic data needed for development of the disaster nursing education curriculum. The average score of disaster awareness was 3.71 out of 5 points, while preparedness of disaster was 0.54 out of 4 points. No statistical significance was found on the association between awareness on disaster and preparedness on disaster. However, awareness of seriousness of disaster was positively correlated with the degree of preparedness on disaster (r=.10, p=.036). We argue from this study that the disaster nursing educational curriculum would help improve the awareness and preparedness of disaster among nursing students and disaster education should begin as early as in the undergraduate level for better linkage to the actual clinical practices.
