A nursing enrichment program for global healthcare awareness.
Join Nurses with Purpose on a rewarding medical mission trip to South Africa. We have partnered with South African leaders in healthcare and will serve in the rural and city limits. This nursing enrichment program allows nurses to have meaningful experiences through volunteering in local clinics, mobile medical units and orphanages. Our program enlightens, encourages and promotes humanitarian efforts for the working class nurse.
Through new insights and placing the nurse at fingers touch with patients, staff and new healthcare systems; our program will not only enhance their nursing practice but will encourage them to make humanitarian work part of their careers.
"Mission trips really expose you to different ways, different processes of doing things, different cultures...you want to bring that back home to the US and implement those strategies" Jalissa G., NC
