Nursing | Nurses without limits

On International Nurses Day 2018, we pay tribute to our 8,843 nurses and all nurses around the world.

From cholera outbreaks to extreme violence, from providing basic care in deprived and remote communities to helping those forced to flee their homes, it would be hard to find a medical activity where MSF’s nurses are not involved.

It would be almost impossible to find any project where nurses are not on the frontline, delivering life-saving care to patients; every hour of every day.

Whether they scrub-in as nurse anaesthetists in an operating theatre, vaccinate thousands of children in one day, manage a hospital ward, travel hundreds of kilometres to help install a mobile clinic in an isolated community or triage people rescued from a sinking boat, MSF’s nurses are usually the first face a patient sees when in MSF’s care.

Their expertise, talent and skills play a critical role in the treatment of our patients.
