In many states, retired doctors and nurses are being asked to return to help with COVID-19 outbreaks. I am sure there is a need for any nurses who are wanting to help out. Contact your local or state department of health for opportunities and contact information.

Please return here and let us know what you find out.

I would like to know this also. I have applied to help in this crisis situation and because I have not had a recent year of med surg or other critical care experience I have been turned down by two travel staffing agencies. Maybe I’m not looking in the right place
