Background and aim: Statistics show high prevalence of disasters across the world and Iran. Since nurses are one of the most important members in the disaster team and they have unique role as a professional and volunteer in time of responding to disaster, they should be able to participate within a team framework and have necessary competences for teamwork in a disaster. This paper reported the results of a qualitative study on the teamwork competences needed by nurses for effective teamwork in response to crisis. Methods: This is a part of larger qualitative study, performed on nurses’ competences in 2012, in Iran. 35 interviews were conducted with nurses who had experience of presence and providing care in a disaster situation. The sampling of participants was done purposefully and continued until data saturation. The data were collected through in-depth unstructured interviews and analyzed using a conventional content analysis approach. Results: Data analysis of qualitative study revealed work qualification in crisis team that includes two main categories: 1) knowledge of duties and organizational hierarchy and 2) maintenance of unity of command. “Obedience from commander”, “avoidance of doing in parallel”, and “coordination and cooperation with leader, relief forces, and other team members” were of the extracted competences in this study, which were highly important for teamwork in crisis. Conclusions: This article presented the results on the qualifications required by nurses for successful teamwork in phase of response to crisis. The analysis of participants’ viewpoints indicated that the nurses need to be completely familiar with their and other team members’ limitations and duties, to know managerial hierarchy, and to be able to maintain unity of commanding. Therefore, nurses’ in-service training to be prepared for response to crisis should address this dimension, as well.
