The first team of registered nurse volunteers from California, Michigan, and Washington State will depart for Haiti Wednesday morning with the Department of Defense’s Continuing Promise, National Nurses United (NNU), the nation’s largest organization of registered nurses, announced today. The volunteer RN team will be treating patients in Haiti and Colombia during their month long deployment.

The group is part of a continuous series of assignments of volunteer RNs from NNU’s Registered Nurse Response Network (RNRN) which included working onboard the USNS Comfort, the critical Navy relief effort that cared for the most seriously injured following the disaster, and Hopital Sacre Coeur (HSC), the  largest private hospital in northern Haiti.
