The United States was "completely unprepared" to deal with the Ebola crisis, says Erin Tolbert, certified family nurse practitioner and founder of MidlevelU, an online support blog for nurses.

"The CDC said, hey, don't worry, everyone can treat Ebola. Clearly it wasn't the case," Tolbert said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"Nurses knew it wasn't the case. Sixty percent of nurses said, hey, we have no idea what we're doing here, no one's ever taught us."

But Ebola protocol is improving, Tolbert says.

"We're getting there," she said.
