Nursing services:

MRC units are community-based and function as a way to locally organize and utilize volunteers who want to donate their time and expertise to prepare for and respond to emergencies and promote healthy living throughout the year. MRC volunteers supplement existing emergency and public health resources.  The Skagit Medical Reserve Corps, is housed by the Skagit County Public Health Department.
Skagit County is a rural county located on the I-5 corridor of WA state. We are located between Seattle and Bellingham, just about 30 miles short of the Canadian border. We recruit licensed health and medical personnel, including nurses, nurse practitioners, veterinarians, pharmacists, doctors, chiropractors, physician assistants, and dentists, and other community resources in the county. We work with several municipal governing structures and have secured Proclamations (formalizing leadership and interest), work with our local newspaper to place articles (to raise awareness) and make presentations to local businesses and organizations, have produced a SCMRC brochure. We meet the public by being present at health fairs, county fair and other community gatherings.

ICS and NIMS training for consistent membership with the MRC; Spanish and emergency nursing training would be helpful, but not required.
