The State Emergency Registry of Volunteers-Nevada (SERV-NV) is a secure, web-based system used to register, qualify and credential Nevada's healthcare professionals before a major public health or medical emergency. From this site registrants may elect to join local Medical Reserve Corps, Statewide Volunteer Pool, or Mental Health Crisis Counselors.
SERV-NV is Nevada's registry for Emergency System of Advance Registration for Volunteer Health Professionals (ESAR-VHP). ESAR-VHP is a national network of state-based systems, which verifies the identity and credentials of health professionals so that they can more readily volunteer for disaster, public health, and medical emergencies. By registering through SERV-NV, volunteers’ identities, licenses, credentials, accreditations, and hospital privileges are all verified in advance of a public health and medical disaster or emergency.
Please visit https://servnv.org/ to register as a volunteer.
