Mercy Volunteers serving as registered nurses must be licensed to practice in the state where they will volunteer. Our service sites guide volunteers in the process of obtaining these licenses. Each of these positions is supported by a site supervisor who ensures that our volunteer is gaining professional experience and is fully immersed in their service site.
