School Emergency Triage Training (SETT) is a program for school nurses. It teaches effective management of school emergencies where there are mass casualties requiring careful planning, preparation, and training to maximize effectiveness under less than optimal conditions. School nurses will learn how to coordinate the collection of information from a variety of sources to develop emergency disaster response plans which requires coordination with school administrators, staff, health care providers, and other community first-responders.
- Module 1: SETT Program Overview
- Module 2: Triage Algorithms
- Module 3: Psychological Issues During Crisis
- Module 4: Building and Leading Emergency Response Teams
- Module 5: Emergency/Disaster Preparedness in Schools
- Module 6: Interactive Triage Practice Scenarios
In this SETT online course you will be guided by a narrator through the sections until course completion. Throughout the program are video clips from the live or in-person SETT program to enhance the learning experience and show some classroom discussion. In addition, there are multiple interactive simulations and application of knowledge to optimize content retention. Resource links and documents are listed with the presentation.
SETT Online Forum
To enhance the learning experience, all SETT participants, including individuals who attended the in-person training and individuals registering for the online training here, are invited to join the SETT Online Forum. Participants of the in-person and online training can gain a great deal of insight from each other through online discussions and knowledge sharing.
At the completion of this program, the participant will be able to:
- Describe the importance of preventative training for disaster planning, organizing, training, equipping, exercising and evaluating and taking corrective action prior to a school Mass Casualty Incident (MCI) event.
- Lists skills and characteristics a school nurse needs to be an effective leader in mass casualty response in schools.
- Apply knowledge to develop basic disaster prevention, protection, mitigation, response and recovery plans for health service providers in schools.
- Identify issues unique to the school setting that can impact the sustainability and effectiveness of disaster preparedness measures.
- Discuss regional considerations related to disaster preparedness training with local and national resources.
- Demonstrate how to use the START/JumpSTART algorithms to perform mass casualty triage.
- Identify and list the principles and methods used to perform triage and response to school-based MCI events.
- Identify strategies to engage school Emergency/Disaster Preparedness Team volunteers and administrative support.
- Describe how the Framework for 21st Century School Nursing Practice ™ is applicable to Emergency/Disaster Preparedness.
This continuing education program is an interactive and knowledge-based activity developed to meet the educational needs of registered nurses who are interested in advancing their practice as a school nurse in the management and mitigation of school emergency triage and training.

Notice to learners who participated in the SETT in-person or classroom training.
This is the same course as the live or in-person program. It has been transformed to an online version. If you participated in the recently revised, June 2017 released, in-person SETT program, you do not have to participate in SETT Online. However, you may participate if you want. The continuing nursing education (CNE) contact hours for the online version are slightly less than the CNE for the in-person training because the online format does not have the face-to-face interactions of a classroom training.
