ONE NURSE AT A TIME is proud to announce our twelfth scholarship for 2011. Sylvia Estrada will travel to San Juan del Rio Coco, Nicaragua in late September to work with Grounds for Health.  In Ms Estrada's own words:
"It was through an article in Nurse Week that I found out about ONAAT.  In the words of St. Francis Assissi, “It is in giving that we receive” and certainly every time I go into a Central American country to provide health care services to the underserved women of that country, I am reminded of how truly fortunate and blessed we are living in this country.  Volunteering in underserved areas is my “Chicken Soup For  The Soul” and I look forward to my annual trips to educate and help heal vulnerable women."
We welcome Sylvia to the sisterhood/Brotherhood of nurses who are changing the world ....One Nurse At A Time !
