Nephrology Nursing COVID-19 Surge Support

Nephrology Nurses Needed for COVID-19 Hot Spots Across the U.S.

The American Nephrology Nurses Association (ANNA) has heard from kidney organizations and healthcare providers across the United States about the dire need for nephrology nurses, advanced practice nurses, and patient care technicians to provide care to patients with kidney failure (including dialysis) in COVID-19 hot spots. ANNA has developed the tool below that identifies areas in need.

States highlighted in red below are designated as areas of need. Simply select the state (either via the map or the state selector) where you would be willing to lend a hand and you will see a list of opportunities. Click an opportunity for more details and for information on how to contact the organization.
