Overview

The University of Texas (UT) at Austin School of Nursing is committed to its role in preparing future nurses with foundation knowledge in all-hazard disaster preparedness, response and recovery. This aids both our internal university system as well as the larger Austin community, in a variety of ways.

After 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina, collaborative planning and leadership between the University of Texas and the City of Austin resulted in a memorandum of cooperation to coordinate preparedness and response activities. Students, faculty and staff (Nursing, Pharmacy, and Social Work) can augment City of Austin resources and can assist in staffing mass shelters or mass immunization clinics.
