Better Care, Together

After a disaster the American Red Cross focuses on meeting people’s immediate needs, including health services. Nursa connects quality clinicians to these same people – in real time. Together we bring compassionate care to the most vulnerable.


Frequent disaster relief operations.

More than 90 percent of the American Red Cross workforce are volunteers, who collectively respond to an average of more than 60,000 disasters every year to alleviate human suffering.


Nurses are needed.

Health service workers support affected communities in a variety of settings, including shelters, emergency aid stations and home visits, by providing health and functional needs care, illness and injury surveillance, and the replacement of lost medications and medical equipment.


On-demand clinicians.

Nursa connects the American Red Cross with hundreds of local health care professionals that are able to fill needed shifts in disaster impacted communities to provide support to care for the health needs of the most vulnerable population.

Shared passion and goals

The American Red Cross and Nursa both work to deliver vital services to those in need.

  • Each person who suffers deserves to have the lifesaving resources and help they need.
  • Improve access to health service for those who are displaced by disaster.
  • The Red Cross is looking for local RNs, LPNs, LVNs, CNAs, EMT/Paramedics, and PAs. Generously volunteering alongside Red Cross volunteers. The perfect match.

I’m grateful for the Red Cross. They took me in and treated me like family.

Jonathan was originally interested in emergency medicine and describes the chaos in the ICU as more “controlled” than an emergency room. As a Red Cross Nurse, he knows he is helping people, doing good things for them, and then seeing the results immediately. What advice does he have for other nurses who may be thinking about joining the Red Cross? He says it is a good way to give back; it is different than a day job as a nurse, and it is refreshing and fun to meet other people.

And you are using a different part of your brain.
