The nursing shortage affects everyone the world over. Those affects being felt even more so in developing countries. According to the WHO Africa has one nurse for every 1,800 people. Compare this to the 14.6 the USA has and its easy to see that the African nurses have their work cut out for them. Their resources are staggeringly limited, the population is bombarded with malaria, malnutrition, parasites and political unrest.
Education is the best way to combat these problems and invest in a communities future. Nurses do not just give medications and document vital signs. They are teachers, care-givers, and communities advocates. This is why the Community Nursing Scholarship was created.
