|Register for Ready Texas Nurses|
Nurses Ready to HelpReady Texas Nurses is a web-based, emergency response system designed to activate volunteer nurses in times of crisis and disaster. Both RNs and LVNs can register to volunteer. All it takes is your nursing license number, a visit to the Ready Texas Nurses registration area to answer some brief questions about your practice expertise and experience, and the willingness to volunteer your nursing skills in time of crisis.
Created in response to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Ready Texas Nurses volunteers have been front-line responders to the disasters brought on by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The experience gained from those two hurricane events helped shaped state policy and made Texas a leader in disaster preparedness. To learn more about how the program started, read more here.
