The Northeast Multistate Division (NEMSD) offers thoughts and prayers for our nurse colleagues, emergency responders, and residents of Texas and Louisiana impacted by the destruction of Hurricane Harvey. We also commend the efforts of the Texas nurses who continue to support their patients and community during the rescue efforts despite their own personal loss. We encourage our membership to support the Texas nurses that have been affected by Hurricane Harvey by donating to the Texas Nurses Foundation at http://bit.ly/2vCiCuH. Texas Nurses Association is contributing administrative expenses so that 100% of donations will be distributed directly to nurses living in any one of the Texas counties declared a disaster area.
For information on how to donate your time and professional skills, please see http://anacapitolbeat.org/2017/08/31/nurses-answer-the-call-for-help-in-wake-of-hurricane-harvey/.
The NEMSD is a collaborative group of individual autonomous states (Maine, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont) whose purpose is to enhance the power, strength, success, sustainability, and voice of its member states through the effective utilization of shared services and resources to champion quality health care and advance the profession of nursing. The NEMSD is accredited as an Approver and Provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation (ANCC/COA).
