(March 6, 2018) - Nurses House, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of its seventh annual Dolphins for Nurses Campaign to raise funds for RNs in need during the month leading up to National Nurses Week. The initiative, sponsored by Cross Country Staffing, invites nurse groups and hospitals nationwide to help raise funds for their colleagues facing serious illness, injury or other dire circumstances by offering paper dolphins in exchange for $1, $5 or $10 donations.

The campaign, which will run from April 12 - May 12, 2018, also has an online fundraising component which will allow individuals and groups to raise funds virtually. A link to the campaign page will be posted on the Nurses House homepage www.nurseshouse.org during the duration of the campaign.
