Mercy Ships’ Cameroon turns nurse’s world upside down – Alabama Nursing Board Defense Lawyer – Call Today! – (866) 348-2889
Nursing is a privilege. I was recently reminded of this during my time volunteering with Mercy Ships in Central Africa, where I spent two months in Cameroon, living and working alongside some of the most beautiful people I’ve ever met as a volunteer on the Africa Mercy.
The experience was rich with memories, but what will stick with me the most is the reminder of exactly why it is that I do what I do.
When I became a nurse I was inspired by the notion of helping to heal others. I think this is true of many nurses. We are often helpers, givers and caretakers, motivated by a desire to make a positive difference in peoples’ lives.
We start with such passion and energy, ready to change the world. But somewhere along the way we lose that.
