    This rumor was spread on twitter. Sorry to say, but it is a hoax. http://edition.cnn.com/2010/TECH/01/...er.hoax.haiti/

    I am currently on the short list to head out in the next 7-10 days. I am an LVN with 1 year experience in Med Surg and Peds. I went thru Angel Staffing as they seem to be the company thats organizing it here in South Texas.

    I hope this helps!

    If anyone is interested in going to Haiti, here are a couple of links for paid events:

    Fastaff: http://www.fastaff.com/

    Angel Staffing: www.angelstaffing.net

    International medical relief is another organization, but a nominal donation is required if you go, for transportation and supplies. http://www.imrhq.org/


    I have applied to both angel and fastaff. I am in-between travel assignments at this time and would love to go help. I would definitely volunteer to go with IMF if they were to provide transportation to Haiti. Hopefully, I get the opportunity to go, I feel so helpless since I have the time. For anyone else wishing to go, hopefully we get the opportunity!!!

    a couple of travelers i work with got an email from fastaff who were looking for RNs to go on two week assignments and i think it was paid. i looked on the site myself today but did not see anythiing that stood out directly to go to Haiti, may want to look more in depth. we donated and are still contemplating going but, i also heard that there is a lot of gang formation and that a lot of people who are trying to get over are stuck in various places because pop is just swamped. hope any of this helps...
