Field: Red Cross Nurse - Blood Drive RN - South LA

This position supports the Regional Biomedical Services department. This opportunity requires participation in in-person activities and/or performing work in a Red Cross facility. California regulations require that any time blood is drawn under a license (for example under the Red Cross license) - it must be under the supervision of a physician or a registered nurse trained in the procedure. The regulations allow for scenarios where a physician is not present (which would be typical for blood drives in California), however, the regulations require that when a physician is not present - the individual placed in charge must be a registered nurse. Red Cross Solution: A Volunteer RN with current license, trained on Red Cross procedures pertaining to donor eligibility and donor reaction management, can act in this capacity.
