Ask any nurse about the reasons s/he became a nurse and somewhere in that conversation will be a discussion about a passion for helping others. Additionally, nurses are also known to be passionate about helping others join the profession of nursing.
Greg, the spouse of a loyal reader of this blog, recently told me about a project his wife has gotten involved in because her passion for helping others led her to help others become nurses. She has taken this passion to the global level where a team of determined people have a goal of financially assisting 5 Haitian students become nurses so they can help save lives in their country where there is a tremendous shortage of health care workers.
Kate is an ER nurse in LA and her passion brought her to HigherEdHaiti to help raise funds for full ride nursing school scholarships for 5 Haitian students. One year's tuition is $360. To date, the group has raised funds to cover full ride scholarships for 2 students. Find out how you can donate to this worthy cause or get more involved in making the dream of becoming a nurse come true for others.
