Hurricane Florence Recovery - Volunteers

North Carolina will continue to experience impacts from Hurricane Florence in the days and weeks to come. If you are interested in volunteering, there are many ways you can help.

How Nurses Can Help

If you are a nurse, please refer to the following resources offered from the NC Nurses Association.

NC Nurses Only:

Out-of-State Nurses Only:

  • Due to licensure restrictions, nurses from outside of NC can only practice as nurses in established NC healthcare systems or through the American Red Cross.
  • Register with your state’s Emergency Management Department now. North Carolina’s Office of Emergency Medical Services will reach out to other states for resources as needed in the coming months.

Any Nurses: There are many volunteering opportunities that do not require you to practice as a nurse. Look for a group within the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (National VOAD).

How Physicians Can Help

If you are a physician, please refer to resources offered from the NC Medical Board.
