In 2017, OADN and the American Red Cross established a partnership to provide opportunities for OADN members to contribute to Red Cross programs across the country while providing student with much-needed clinical learning experiences.
OADN members have been encouraged to become Red Cross Disaster Health Services volunteers and respond to disasters in their communities as well as to large national disasters." Read the full article and Spring 2019 update here.
This OADN member benefit takes the form of an ACADEMIC SERVICE LEARNING AFFIILIATION AGREEMENT between a nursing program and the Red Cross.
This is a template that OADN member schools and the local American Red Cross chapter can use to establish clinical agreements at the local level that will provide practical learning opportunities and/or clinical experiences.
