++ About UNMC's HEROES Project ++

HEROES - Healthcare and Emergency Responder Organization Education through Simulation - provides Emergency Preparedness education and training for healthcare providers and students across the state of Nebraska.

We have an interdisciplinary approach to preparedness for Biological, Chemical, Radiological and Natural disaster emergencies. Spearheaded by the UNMC College of Nursing, we collaborate with the College of Medicine, School of Allied Health Professions and the Center for Preparedness Education (http://www.preped.org).

The project’s goal is to simulate potential emergency and public health threats for students and practicing health professionals. Simulation is a safe place to reduce anxiety, promote learning and maintain competence in emergency response skills.

Funded through a University of Nebraska programs of Excellence Grant, HEROES provides education through it’s website - http://www.unmcheroes.org - and Mobile Simulation Unit.

Since 2005 the HEROES project has traveled more than 40,000 miles to work with healthcare and emergency response providers and educators across the state.
