Emergency System of Advance Registration for Volunteer Health Professionals (ESAR-VHP)

SERV-NV is Nevada's registry for the 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.
