Volunteer nurses have a special calling to promote health and healing to those that may not have easy access to healthcare.  Whether local, or international, volunteer nurses travel to areas where urgent care needs may arise or continual healthcare is needed. Typically, access to clinical facilities are limited to those seeking help. We advocate for the ones suffering, their families, and communities alike. We not only use our clinical judgment but we infuse them with belief, hope and prayer.  We do not discriminate against any group or religion but come wholeheartedly for those in need.
