Nurses with an active license can also be trained to teach hands on care, feeding, and Comfort Touch classes to volunteers.  Contact the Volunteer Office at 216.255.9090 or email volunteering@hospicewr.org.

Volunteer nurses, nursing assistants, medical technicians, phlebotomists, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, doctors and other licensed or certified clinicians are also needed to run Rapid COVID-19 staff testing clinics at HWR sites.

Current and up-to-date licenses/certifications and viewing of a training video are required. Contact the Volunteer Office at 216.255.9090 or email volunteering@hospicewr.org.
