Registered Nurses - We Need You!

Are you:

  • An RN who is looking to do meaningful work?
  • Interested in practicing medicine in a kind and compassionate way
  • Available for a few hours a month?
Do you:
  • Have a desire to utilize your knowledge, background and skills?
  • Wish to give back to the community?

If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions, please consider volunteering at BVMI!

BVMI provides free primary healthcare for low-income working Bergen County adults who do not have health insurance or the means to pay for healthcare.

We are guided by a culture of caring which includes the belief that healing begins when a patient is greeted at the door, invited in and accorded the interest, dignity and respect that s/he may not have encountered elsewhere in life and the belief that the care and healing provided at the Healthcare Center benefits the volunteers and employees as much as the patients.

Our volunteer nurses are the heart of our organization, greeting our patients and working one-on-one with an individual physician or nurse practitioner in the care of our patients.

We'd love for you to join our team of healthcare professionals. We'll provide training, malpractice insurance, flexible schedule and a wonderful team of dedicated professionals. Our patients will provide unending gratitude!

Please visit www.bvmi.org for more information or contact Elaine Posner, Volunteer Coordinator, eposner@bvmi.net (201)518-8488.

We hope to welcome you to the BVMI team soon!
