There are many ways for nurses to get involved in their communities as volunteers. There are also times when nurses are needed to aid in relief efforts.
During emergency situations or in the hours and days after a natural disaster, nurses are often called upon to offer their time and skills. If you have the ability to volunteer, it can be an incredibly rewarding experience.
Not only can it be fulfilling on a personal level, it can also help nurses to network and connect with others in the field. It provides an opportunity to get involved at a local level, and to demonstrate to others the power and importance of nursing.
