National Nurses Month a Time to Celebrate Red Cross Nurses
The American Red Cross relies on thousands of nurses and other health professionals to bring our mission to life each day. They bring relief to disaster victims, work in military hospitals, and collect lifesaving blood. They develop and teach courses ranging from disaster preparedness to addressing health equity through the social determinants of health. Red Cross health professional volunteers serve in direct care roles, management, supervisory and governing roles throughout our organization.

The 2023 Nurses Month Symposium titled Supporting Nurses and Colleagues to Achieve Health Equity consists of four sessions:
Each symposium session is approved for 1.0 nursing contact hour by the California Board of Registered Nursing. Contact hours may be received by viewing the video and completing the Post-Test and Evaluation for each session. Recordings and links to the post-test and evaluation will remain accessible through December 31, 2023.
The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides comfort to victims of disasters; supplies about 40% of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; distributes international humanitarian aid; and supports veterans, military members and their families. The Red Cross is a nonprofit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to deliver its mission.
