PFA Online: Nursing Contact Hours Now Available
PFA online is now approved for Nursing Contact Hours! After completing the course, registered nurses can receive 6 hours of credit as required by the Board of Registered Nursing. PFA online is an interactive course that puts the participant in the role of a provider in a post-disaster scene. This professionally-narrated course is for individuals new to disaster response who want to learn the core goals of PFA, as well as for seasoned practitioners who want a review.

It features innovative activities, video demonstrations, and mentor tips from the nation’s trauma experts and survivors. PFA online also offers a Learning Community where participants can share experiences using PFA in the field, receive guidance during times of disaster, and obtain additional resources and training.

This project was funded by Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration, US Department of Health and Human Services, the National Center for PTSD, the National Association of County and City Health Officials, and the HHS Office of the Surgeon General, Office of the Civilian Volunteer Medical Reserve Corps. For more details about this course and additional continuing education credits available, check out the NCTSN Learning Center!
