Nurses Week

May 6 - 12, 2017

In celebration of Nurses Week, Global Partners recognizes the remarkable care provided by nurses around the world!

We invite you to make a difference in the health and well-being of global communities by supporting nursing education in the communities Global Partners serves: donate today!

Our goal is to raise $5,000 to fund scholarships for nursing students, nursing textbook donations and training opportunities for nurses in Ethiopia, Nicaragua and Pine Ridge Reservation, S.D.

This year, a local husband-wife RN team, Al and Rosanne Schulz, is pledging to match $500 for every $1,000 raised toward the goal, for the possibility of raising $7,500!

At Gundersen, we are surrounded by an abundance of resources and educational opportunities, but this is not the case for nurses everywhere. We invite you to share our abundance so that nurses are empowered with resources that allow them to provide excellent care in their own communities.

Thank you for sharing your resources so generously to make another nurse's education possible.

To make a donation online, use our secure online gift form.

To make a donation by mail, please use the Nurses Week donation form.

With the $3,700 raised last year, Global Partners provided:

  • A $500 scholarship for a Lakota nursing student, Tricia Badmilk
  • $300 to purchase supplies for the nursing lab at Oglala Lakota College
  • $900 to purchase Helping Babies Breathe/Helping Mothers Survive materials to teach these courses to nurse midwife students in Ethiopia
  • $2,000 to purchase Nursing Diagnosis manuals for graduating nurses from the University of Nicaragua, to use during their year in social service
Love + Medicine

Every day, Gundersen Health System staff deliver great medicine plus a little something extra—we call it Love + Medicine.
