I used this simulation in my community health nursing course.  The students really enjoyed the activity.  The exercise allowed the students to function in the role of the public health nurse during a disaster situation.  They were also able to experience the consequences of poor decision making in a safe learning environment.  Additionally, the simulation gave multiple opportunities to explore other professional roles of emergency personnel.  I will continue to use this resource as long as it is available.
