Nurses for the Nations is restoring hope, transforming lives, bringing health to the indigenous…one person at a time.
Nurses for the Nations is grounded on life-giving principles recognized by members of the human family in the delivery of transformational care based on the Gospel of Matthew. These principles are altruistic love, peace, goodness, patience, kindness, compassion, faith, belief in God and the inherent dignity and worth of every human being. We acknowledge the sacredness of the human family.
We form partnerships and alliances with Churches, faith-based organizations and charitable entities to improve the human condition through focused medical evangelizing, raise levels of awareness with global suffering and equip the Church through ‘Hand in Hand,’ a partnership service program which addresses the health and welfare needs of indigenous ‘unreached’ communities and assists in church planting through a medical transformational model of care.
Nurses for the Nations deplores global health atrocities, acts of violence or cruelties committed against men, women, children or infants who are physically, emotionally or mentally ill, weak, societal outcasts or defenseless against forces that exclude them from compassionate kindness, care, health education or humane treatment.
Our Integrated Approach is not a ‘treat and leave methodology.’ Our organizational work and partnership outreach with other faith-based organizations, charitable organizations and communities is participatory, life-giving, relational and purposeful. Our organizational mission aligns with the message of the gospel: to transform lives and bring the message of the good news to the unreached.
In addition to working with our own organizational projects in partnership with local and international institutions, we offer support through a life-giving renewal and outreach plan which utilizes a ‘Transformational Model of Care’ © and works in partnership to serve the Church, charitable or faith-based organizations so they can target, train and transform their focused outreach areas. We do this by working in partnership to prepare, teach and train medical church community service team members and service outreach participants in N4N’s programs.
Our christian outreach by nurses is the first 501 (c)3 organization of its kind.
Nurses for the Nations assists churches and service outreach organizations to develop sustainable programs through:
Global Health Improvement Programs:
-GHI programs focus on targeted health issues through testing and nursing treatment
Health Teaching and Training Programs:
-HTT programs raise quality of life through education and training about disease, poverty, social and welfare issues
Health Village Sustainability Programs:
-HVS programs engage individuals at the ‘village’ level by inviting them to be active participants in N4N programs and outreach
N4N develops unique processes and strategies to address the specific needs of the cultures they serve: these plans work in concert with un-reached communities and countries while we strategically train medical local church and/or community teams, capstone on their strengths and fill in the gaps where the need is greatest.
Helping Change the Face of Malaria
“He who oppresses the poor reproaches his Maker, but he who is gracious to the needy honors Him.” -Proverbs 14:31
Paige Mincey, Nursing Team Member, Nurses for the Nations, Service Outreach Trip to Africa
This mission trip was an experience of a lifetime and opened my eyes up to how blessed I truly am. I now have a better understanding about what it is really like to live in poverty. I left behind the comforts of air conditioning and clean water and in result, learned what it is like to sweat profusely and not shower for 9 full days. In addition, I became much more grateful to have access to a wonderful healthcare system after quickly learning that the Liberian villagers are greatly affected by Malaria and other diseases, but have very few healthcare workers and facilities nearby to obtain treatment. There are no words to describe what it was like for my eyes to gaze upon a positive malaria-testing strip, especially the very first day when it was the life of a child. However, with prayer and the Liberians decision to comply with Nurses for the Nations transformational program, I believe and have high hopes that there will be change in Liberia, West Africa and Malaria will disappear with the help of Jesus Christ.
I viewed this journey as a wonderful opportunity to grow stronger together in Christ and a time that we could implement our knowledge and skills acquired from nursing school in the indigenous communities of Liberia, West Africa to make a difference.
