RNRN Disaster Relief Volunteer Form

Be there for patient care...

Thank you for signing up with the RN Response Network (RNRN), a project of the California Nurses Foundation (CNF). RNRN is a national network of direct care RNs - powered by National Nurses United (NNU) - that coordinates sending volunteer RNs to disaster stricken areas where and when they are needed most. Registering as an RNRN volunteer does not automatically mean you will be called for a disaster. RNs will be asked to volunteer based on need and availability. PLEASE JOIN US TODAY!

Vaccinations/Tests: This is for information only, not requirements for volunteering. For most deployments, certain vaccines will be either recommended or required. RNRN cannot guarantee deployment, so we do not recommend getting vaccinations or tests before your deployment is confirmed. However, it is useful to gather proof of vaccinations and research how and where you can get any needed vaccinations and tests on short notice in your area. You do not need to take any action unless you are instructed by RNRN staff to do so for a confirmed deployment.

Length of Availability (We understand it may be different than length of release time you are ultimately approved for.) 
If chosen for deployment, you may be given very short notice (1 to 3 days) before the departure date. Is this something you can do?  
Deployment is not guaranteed, so it is important to have an ongoing conversation with your hospital regarding flexibility for release time. How long will your hospital/facility be able to approve release time on short notice?  
Additional availability notes:
Are you a National Nurses United (NNU) member? 
Are you a California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee (CNA/NNOC) member? 
Thank you for completing the RNRN volunteer application. Please remember that volunteers are matched to deployments based on skill set, experience and availability. If you are not a match for current deployments, we may not be able to contact you directly but will update all volunteers as much as possible. Thank you again for volunteering with RNRN.
