Investing in International Nursing Education

Advancing the Art and Science of Nursing by Sharing Knowledge and Hope

We're a nonprofit organization helping medical professionals in developing countries improve their skill set to save lives.

The mission of Nurses Heart to Heart is to equip nurses in the developing world with the training and resources they need to care for their patients.

In practical terms, this means traveling to teach nurses where they are: in hospitals, nursing schools, refugee camps, and conferences.

Nurses Heart to Heart also provides medications, medical supplies, training equipment, and other needed resources to nurses, nursing schools, health clinics, and hospitals in the regions Nurses Heart to Heart serves.

“Can you teach me how to pump the chest?”
-Mongolian nurse, Ulaan Bataar, Mongolia, 2008

Every day in hospitals across America someone’s heart stops beating.
Within seconds a nurse begins CPR and a “Code” is called.
Within about a minute, the room is filled with doctors and nurses.

. . . And the beat goes on . . .

Often in hospitals in developing countries when someone’s heart stops beating
the skill of CPR is unknown by the nurses caring for the patients.
Minutes mean life!

For every minute there is a delay in starting CPR the patient’s chance for survival drops exponentially.

“Anyone, anywhere, can now initiate cardiac resuscitative procedures. All that is needed is two hands.”
-Dr. James Jude, Inventor of CPR, 1960s

. . . And the beat goes on . . .
