It's National Nurses Week and the American Red Cross recognizes the important contributions of the thousands of nurses who serve in staff and volunteer positions at all levels of the Red Cross to help the organization achieve its mission of preventing and alleviating human suffering in the face of emergencies.
Nurses are an integral part of the Red Cross, serving all Red Cross lines of service in many different capacities. For more than 125 years, they have provided assistance and support to people in need in this country and around the world. Red Cross nurses make a difference. You too can be a Red Cross Nurse.
