Westchester County Executive George Latimer is calling on all available New York State Licensed nurses to step forward and once again work in service of your neighbors. The call applies to retired or currently non-working nurses in this time of great need. Currently the County doesn't have enough nurses to meet it's current demand; the concern is that demand will only grow.

Nurses will be utilized to assist at locations such as nursing homes, child care programs, congregate care facilities, senior buildings and other sites that serve vulnerable populations. Westchester County Department of Social Services will coordinate the placements in partnership with the Department of Health.

Those interested in serving the community in this capacity should contact Lindsay Jackson at . Additionally, the New York state is asking all recently retired health professionals (including doctors) to volunteer to act as reserve staff. These professionals are asked to complete this survey.

We thank you in advance for considering this calling for your service during this unprecedented time.
