Red Cross Nursing Leadership
National Nursing Committee
The National Nursing Committee (NNC) was established in 1910, with Jane Delano as its first chair. Local and state committees were also established. The NNC supported and guided nursing involvement in all Red Cross services. Over time, the NNC was eliminated and then reestablished. The most recent NNC has functioned continuously since 1992. Today, the NNC is actively working with strategic initiatives and work groups to promote and guide nursing involvement throughout the entire Red Cross. The NNC supports nurse recruitment, retention and partnerships that represent the communities served by the Red Cross; pursues creative activities to meet community and public health needs; and develops nurse volunteers to meet mentoring and leadership opportunities across the organization. The NNC takes a leadership role in resource development to ensure adequate future funding for nursing and health-related activities in the Red Cross.
