Disasters have an impact in causing structural surface damage and affecting all sectors, resulting in loss of life and individual incapacity and are difficult to predict. The purpose of this study was to explain the effect of disaster nursing models to reduce post-traumatic stress syndrome. Quasi-experiment research with post-test using control group research design with 222 respondents. Data collection tools used by researchers were questionnaire containing respondents' demographic data, impact of event scale and affect intensity measure (AIM) (Larsen and Buss, 2008; Townley and Kloos, 2009), data were analyzed using Mann Whitney test. In a disaster nursing model to reduce PTSS we needed to evaluate the impact of event scale and affect intensity measure. Based on statistical analysis, the P value showed significant effect in variable impact of event scale (P = 0.000), and for the affect intensity measured there was no significant influence. It can be concluded from the results that significant influence means there was difference between control and intervention group given by the disaster nursing model plan. Disaster nursing models to reduce post-traumatic stress syndrome have influence on impact of event preparation.
