Healthcare pros. Your experience is needed. (Somerset County)
ORGANIZATION: American Red Cross - New Jersey Region
Please visit the new page to apply.
We’re preparing for another extremely busy disaster season, and it’s critical to have a trained, ready volunteer workforce to make sure we can provide relief at a moment’s notice. This year’s wildfire season is already very active and dangerous because of the severe drought and dry woodlands across the west. And experts are predicting we could see 10 or more hurricanes with winds anywhere from 74 to 111 miles per hour.
Licensed healthcare professionals needed! With predictions for a very active hurricane and wildfire season, disaster victims need your expert care and comfort. Training is free and CE credit is available. For those able to travel outside of their local area, we request a commitment of at least 10 consecutive days, with shifts of 8 or 12 hours each (we'll provide travel accommodations). Licenses required: RN, LPN, LVN, EMT, Paramedic, MD, DO, PA, NP, APRN. It’s the hardest job you will ever love!
To apply or learn more, visit us online or contact your local recruiter at JoinNJ@redcross.org.
Safety First! Our need for volunteers is constant and our guidelines reflect the latest CDC and local-government COVID-19 safety recommendations.
