Texas Hospitals in Need of Nurses!
Texas hospitals are in critical need of NICU registered nurses to help provide relief to those who have been working countless hours since Hurricane Harvey made landfall last Friday. Area hospital systems are currently transporting nurses into Dallas and Austin, and working to get nurses into the Houston/Corpus Christi areas as the water recedes.
It's easiest if you are licensed in one of the following compact states - Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia or Wisconsin. However if you are not licensed in any of these areas and are still interested in assisting, they do have the capability of emergency licensure.
Please consider helping out your fellow nurses and the women and families they serve. If you are available please contact Sue Cadwell at [email protected], with your name, licensure, level of NICU experience, telephone number and email address.
