Volunteer Nurses:

Nurse volunteers are needed to help monitor the TMS Facebook page (or future Inspire forum), to respond to emails and/or to take phone calls from patients, caregivers, family members, physicians and other health care professionals. We will train you in promoting the mission of TMS. You can offer to volunteer any number of hours that you are able to. Any time you can give is much appreciated. We know there are a lot of nurses out there, and we hope to hear from many of you!

Nurses must have graduated from an accredited diploma program in nursing, associate degree program in nursing, bachelor degree program in nursing or higher, hold a current license to practice nursing in their home state, and we strongly advise that nurses carry nurse malpractice insurance that covers them as volunteers (i.e. Nursing Service Organization malpractice insurance). TMS has a general policy to cover us as a non-profit institution, which covers all volunteers, and we will be adding specific coverage for liability for nurses. If they have any additional initials or certifications after their name, such as RNC, copies of these certifications must be submitted to be kept on file to the Patient Care Coordination Chair along with a copy of their current license and insurance. Please fill out a volunteer form, specifying this job interest, at  https://tmsforacure.org/community/volunteer/
