Mission to South Africa

What makes us special?

 

Nurse Created, Nurse Focused and Nurse Driven. 

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.


Year round opportunity to attend. Pick your time and GO! 


Directors govern each mission trip. At least one representative will attend to ensure effectiveness of the projects.


Be greeted VIP style at the OR TAMBO International Airport in Johannesburg and transported to the Nurses with Purpose lodging site  


Mission trips at its finest! We provide well balanced mission trip experiences, where one gives back through time of service, followed by several days of fun, rest and relaxation!
