Ebola Resources for Nurse Educators
To support the information needs of nursing school deans, faculty, students, and other stakeholders, AACN has developed this resource center to highlight key information sources about the Ebola crisis found on the web. This page will be updated daily to include details about new informational events and webinars, the latest news from the CDC, and work underway at our nation’s nursing schools related to Ebola preparedness and response.
Schools wishing to suggest resources and links to be added to this page are encouraged to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. AACN will update the resources below on a daily basis, but we advise readers to consult the CDC for the authoritative information on this health crisis.
