The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) recognizes the critical role nurses play in responding to the health care needs of patients in the United States and across the globe. To that end, the American Association of Colleges of Nursing has been engaged in communication with HHS officials to discuss Ebola readiness and response in the nursing community.
There is also an important role for nursing students in delivering important public health information about Ebola to friends and family. With their knowledge of health care, as the students head home for the holidays, they can answer questions and dispel myths about the Ebola virus. Attached is a fact sheet, “Top Five Things to Know about Ebola,” that you can share with your students to help guide them in their discussions.
