Objective:This scoping review protocol will map the literature related to interprofessional learning among undergraduate nursing, other health and allied health students and professionals to prevent, prepare, or respond to a simulated disaster event.

Introduction: The frequency of disasters has been increasing globally. Nurses constitute the largest proportion of the health workforce and play an important role in disaster response, together with other health and allied health professionals. The development and implementation of disaster exercises that are inclusive of nursing, other health, and allied health students or professionals will benefit students' learning around disaster response. Therefore, it is timely to conduct a review of disaster exercises that have conceptualized and implemented an interprofessional team approach inclusive of nursing students.

Inclusion criteria: Publications of quantitative, qualitative, mixed method studies, discussions, text, or opinion reporting a disaster simulation or drill involving nursing and other health, allied health discipline students or practitioners will be included. There is no limit on the publication period or languages. All types of natural and human-induced disasters will be considered.

Methods: The search will be conducted in MEDLINE, CINAHL, ERIC, Embase, Web of Science, ProQuest Nursing and Allied Health, and PsycINFO. Two reviewers will screen titles and abstracts for potential papers, and the full texts will be examined against eligibility criteria. Data will be extracted using the tool developed for this review. Nursing roles and how nursing students have collaborated with other team members will be discussed.
