I am an LPN and I would like know if there is any organization that I can join and go to Haiti to help? Thank you
- 0Jan 13, '10 by Lala27poodlesThere is Hope for Haiti
Visit them at http://www.hopeforhaiti.com/volunteering.php to inquire about help,
There is Red Cross, you have to contact your local chapter.
There is Nurses International, or Nurses without Borders, that you can contact.
Be patient, they will surely accept your help, but you may have to go through a rush training course/temporary certification in order to go, plus traveling internationally is always a lengthy process, unfortunately. I'm sure they are trying to get the help there as quickly as possible.
Help IS on the way, but Haiti is very far away, and parts of it are unreachable. Teams from ALL over the world, China, Denmark, USA, Britain.....everyone is coming to help.

- 1Jan 14, '10 by lindarnThe Californai Nurses Association is asking for nurse volunteers to go to Haiti and help. Look them up online. They have a list of the necesary items that you will need.
Passport, certain vaccinations, etc.
