Information for Nurses

Wings of Mercy can provide flight nurses for a Wings of Mercy mission if needed. These may be Registered Nurses (RNs), LPNs, BSNs, EMTs, PAs or other medically trained personnel.

Adopt-A-Flight No823

Most of our pilot's planes are 4 or 6 seat, non-pressurized general aviation aircraft.  Getting in and out of one may be compared to getting in and out of the back seat of a car.  Therefore, all passengers must be able to sit for the duration of the flight and wear a seat belt. Because most planes are not pressurized, some patients may find that their medical condition may become exacerbated. A flight nurse may be able to help with these situations. 

Physicians and nurses who are not familiar with aviation physiology have an excellent resource - Dr. Dave Van Nostrand, our founder.

If you are a nurse considering our organization we encourage you to explore further. Feel free to reach out to us at the [Contact Us] button to the left. Please familiarize yourself with the nurse application form (.PDF file).
