Mission to South Africa

What makes us special? We are the 1st organization to take claim on being nurse centered

Nurse Focused.

Nurse Driven.

Nurse Created. 

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 serve in rural and city limits. This nursing enrichment program allows nurses to have meaningful experiences through volunteering in local clinics, on site locations with mobile medical units and child protective services.  Our program enlightens, encourages and promotes humanitarian services for the working class nurse.  

Our teams gains invaluable lessons through patient interaction, staff engagement, and exposure to new healthcare systems.  We strive to give the nurse an ultimate experience that 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 want to bring that back home to the US and implement those strategies"  Jalissa G., RN North Carolina  

With opportunities four times a year;  pick a time, apply, invite others and GO! 

Directors govern each mission trip along with team leaders.  With each project we create effectiveness with no wasted downtime.

"I was really impressed on how organized everything was.  No wasted time," Stanley C., RN Florida

We take the claim of Mission Trips at its finest !  We provide well balanced experiences, where one gives back followed by rest and rejuvenation.
