AbstractHealthcare systems in many Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development Countries (OECD) are ill prepared for minimizing the risks and withstanding the impacts of natural disasters caused by climate change. In the 21st century, all nursing specialties will be affected by escalating natural disasters as practice is adapted for the Anthropocene. This rapid review defines the current evidence base of nurses’ experiences during natural disasters. Nurses are providing professional services during natural disasters, however, are often personal victims of the events. Nurses report being ill equipped with disaster knowledge and for working with damaged infrastructure during extreme weather events. This challenges their capacity to provide clinical decision-making and leadership under uncertainty. These lessons learned should be translated into education resources that better prepare nurses for climate crisis nursing in the Anthropocene.
