The Heritage Program

Recognizing Nurses’ Contributions to the Red Cross Past and Present

The National Nursing Committee proposed the Heritage program in 2010 to reconnect with former Red Cross Nurses, recognize and obtain resources for Red Cross nursing activities and initiatives, and preserve Red Cross nursing history. Highlighting past and current accomplishments can inspire the nursing workforce today.

A newsletter is published quarterly to inform health professionals on current initiatives and celebrate successes. Articles include opportunities for planned giving and information about Nurses Supporting the Eradication of Measles and Rubella. See the latest Nursing Matters: Past and Present newsletter.

To request a copy of the newsletter please send your contact information to and include your email and regular mailing address.
