Welcome to Nurses for Nurses

We are Sponsoring our first Nursing Student!


Why are we sponsoring a nursing student?
The nurse that we support will go on to improve healthcare in their community for many years to come. By supporting this nurse, we are lifting them and their families out of a cycle of poverty and empowering them to take a role of leadership in their community. A sponsorship costs approximately $2,400 annually.

What we Do

Nicaraguans struggle with a lack of access to basic healthcare. It is our mission for all Nicaraguans to have access to essential medical services. We provide access to resources and education that will improve the lives of rural Nicaraguans.


Help us with our mission by funding the education of a nurse! Our nurses will return to their local regions once their education is completed so they can provide essential health services to their communities.

Who We Are

The Nurses for Nurses team is a group of nurse volunteers that are passionate about health and well-being, international development, and capacity building. Some of our nurse volunteers have had the opportunity to visit Nicaragua over the years, meet with our contacts, experience their clinics and gain a better understanding of their health care system.
