Case Western Reserve's Flight Nursing Academy holds camp for nurses in air medical services

CLEVELAND The National Flight Nursing Academy at Case Western Reserve University is holding its second annual Summer Camp 2004 for intensive training of advanced practice nurses, flight nurses and emergency service personnel in emergency response. The camp will be held the week of August 9-13 at Case's Squire Valleevue Farm in Hunting Valley, Ohio.

With today's terrorism concerns surrounding the Summer Olympics in Greece and threat of terrorism on American soil, as well as worrisome health-related events of recent years such as SARS, West Nile virus and the anthrax scare, the need to diagnose and initiate advanced treatment for disaster victims as quickly as possible often at the scene of the disaster has never been greater.

In 2002, Case's Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing and MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland jointly established the nation's first academic program offering a degree to flight nurses. Graduates of this master's degree program at Case are eligible to take the Acute Care Nurse Practitioner certificate exam. The academy is a partnership between the Bolton School and MetroHealth Medical Center's Metro Life Flight, one of the leading air medical services in the United States.

"The focus of this intense training is to bring the emergency room to the roadside," said Carolyn T. Nieman, director of the annual summer camp and a lecturer at the Bolton School. "It is absolutely imperative that nurses provide care in unstructured environments in response to any and all natural or technological disasters."

The five-day, 40-hour hands-on training course will include:

  • Technologic disaster scene response
  • Critical incident stress management
  • Flight safety
  • Preparing landing zones
  • Toxicology and poisoning
  • Cardiac emergencies
  • Portable ultrasound lab
  • Physics of flight
  • '"/>
