Long after the TV news cameras have moved on, nurses keep going to earthquake-and now cholera-ravaged Haiti. Many are funded by donations to National Nursing United’s Registered Nurse Response Network.

RNRN was founded after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita exposed massive holes in America’s disaster response plans.

The organization coordinates funding and logistics for the thousands of RNs who want to volunteer their services in times of need.
