Be the change you want to see in the world. ~ Ghandi

It all started 6 years ago with the idea of helping nurses take their first step into the humanitarian world.  Now One Nurse At A Time has grown into an organization which has funded 42 volunteer nursing scholarships and, as evidenced by emails, has helped countless nurses through our website.  One Nurse has given me the opportunity to serve my fellow nursing colleagues and to encourage and be encouraged by those nurses who see our profession as a ministry.  
This has been an exciting and rewarding ride, but now it is time for me to say goodbye. My life has changed drastically over the past 6 years.  My 3 children, ages 9, 6, and 11 months, need me present in their lives and I love being their mom.  I’m looking forward to having the time to spend with my kids and my husband.I will always support the core mission of ONAAT and will be cheering from the sidelines.   I look forward to seeing what the future holds for One Nurse At A Time and feel privileged to have been a part of such a wonderful organization.

Denise Walsh, RN, MSN said it best, “To look into the eyes of the desperately poor, and see their hope in your ability to care, is what it means to be a nurse.  You are the scientist, you are the caregiver, you are the nurse. I implore you to always have eyes that will see the injustices and the inequities in the world. And to know that your eyes are the eyes that the patient will always remember.”

Kindest Regards,
