For Immediate Release:


(Feb 27, 2017) - Nurses House, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of its sixth annual Dolphins for Nurses Campaign to raise funds for RN’s in need throughout the United States. The initiative invites nursing groups and staff at hospitals nationwide to raise funds for our colleagues in need by offering paper dolphins in exchange for $1, $5 or $10 donations between April 12 and May 12. The campaign will culminate during National Nurses Week, May 6-12, and is a great team-building activity which can be easily incorporated into other Nurses Week plans.

This campaign also has an online fundraising component which allows individuals or groups to sign up through the Nurses House website,, anytime during the campaign timeframe and raise funds virtually. All funds raised will be allocated to the Nurses House Service Program to help nurses facing serious health issues and other dire circumstances afford basic necessary expenses.

Nurses House, Inc. is the only national 501(c)3 organization offering short term financial assistance to Registered Nurses in need. The organization’s sole mission is to provide short-term aid to nurses who are unable to support themselves financially as a result of illness, injury, disability or catastrophic event. Since Nurses House began offering financial aid to nurses in the 1960’s, the organization has helped thousands of nurses in all fifty states regain health and productivity. In the past three years alone, Nurses House has distributed grants totaling over $500,000 to RN’s in need. Funds help cover basic expenses such as rent or mortgage payments, health insurance premiums and medications. Any Registered Nurse residing in the United States who is facing a hardship situation, and whose monthly income is insufficient to meet his or her basic needs, is encouraged to apply. Applications are available on the Nurses House website or by calling (518) 456-7858.
