Nurses from around the country are stepping up in a big way to safeguard our communities and work to prevent the spread of COVID-19. While an emergency proclamation from the Governor is in effect, a volunteer health practitioner who is licensed in another state may practice in Washington without obtaining a Washington license if they are in good standing in all states of licensure and are registered in the volunteer health practitioner system.
The time is now for nurses to do what we do. We get involved. We don’t sit on the sidelines while our communities suffer. We get things done. This pandemic will not subside without the dedication and effort of our nation’s nurses.
Find what you need to begin the process of signing up today.
Volunteers should also consider registering with their local medical reserve corps. Learn more here.
Questions can be emailed to the WAserv coordinator, Kim Butowicz, at WAserv@doh.wa.gov or 360 – 236-4090.
