Emergency Educators, LLC was founded in 2005 by Michael D. Whalen, RN, BSN, CEN, CEM, a highly respected professional in the emergency preparedness field. With the mission of delivering high quality educational and emergency preparedness needs to the health care industry, Emergency Educators has led the way as the foremost expert consulting agency in the Berks and surrounding county area. Development of hospital-based patient decontamination teams and full-scale community-based exercises for emergency preparedness are just a few capabilities of the highly specialized and skilled team of subject matter experts at Emergency Educators.
As an experienced nurse and educator in Berks County’s largest emergency department, Mr. Whalen created a teaching style specific to the needs of his students -- professional yet casual, non-intimidating, and informative. This unique education style won him national recognition, as the single recipient of the 2005 National Emergency Nurses Association Distinguished Certified Emergency Nurse Education Award. Mr. Whalen was recognized as the premier expert educator in his field, delivering lectures throughout Pennsylvania and national symposiums in New Orleans and Chicago. In 2006, Mr. Whalen was awarded with the Pennsylvania Emergency Nurses Educator of the Year Award.
Emergency Educators selectively chooses top quality instructors that understand our unique philosophy: professional quality education can be fun! Bringing a variety of experiences to the table, our staff are active critical care nurses, paramedics and subject matter experts.
