Jan. 19, 2010 - The American Nurses Association (ANA) has been contacted by the International Medical Corps to assist in recruiting nurse volunteers to work in a hospital on the border of Haiti and the Dominican Republic in the following specialties:
- Perioperative Services
- Care of post-operative surgical patients
Nurses interested in participating in this mission should send an e-mail to ANA. Please be advised that volunteer responders should consider the following:
- Conditions are likely to be VERY austere. Responders need to be physically fit and able to manage themselves in such an environment.
- Talk with your family and employer. It is likely the mission could last more than 2 weeks.
Please visit the Volunteer Now page on NursingWorld to learn more about how to become an emergency first responder.
