Become a Disaster Nurse Volunteer

As a nurse you are constantly looking for ways to help people out. Travel nurses are no different, especially after a disaster. For any nurse, preparation is crucial. Be prepared by signing up for a state disaster volunteer registry near you or where you are licensed.

If you hold a state license, get registered now as a state disaster volunteer. We recommend doing this, as soon as possible, so there is no delay when a disaster strike’s.

 

 

Who is Eligible? In most states the following can register as healthcare volunteers:

  • Behavioral health professionals (marriage and family therapists, clinical social workers, psychologists, and mental health counselors)
  • Cardiovascular technologist and technicians
  • Diagnostic medical sonographers
  • Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics
