NTR has one goal: to provide nurses in developing countries with
a standardised level of skill and education. We’re starting at a grassroots level because research shows that if you continually encourage the professional development of nurses then patient
Proper and passionate face-to-face, nurse-to-nurse training will see:
We want to give nurses in developing countries the skills and encouragement they deserve. Through a nurse-to-nurse train the trainer program, we’ll equip senior nurses with the necessary skills to educate their junior staff. As the junior nurses grow to be more experienced, they themselves will be equipped to teach their juniors, thus creating a self-sustaining education system.
And it all starts here, with this website.
Lucy is an educated and experienced intensive care nurse from Sydney, Australia. After completing a combined Bachelor in Nursing and Bachelor in Science, she commenced work at Sydney’s Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. She completed a New Graduate year, worked in Neurosurgical Intensive Care and travelled extensively over 5 years. She’s always been extremely passionate about her profession, mostly led by the keen desire to simply help people.
It was a working holiday in Nepal that changed the course of Lucy’s life; seeing the hardworking nurses, who were equipped with tools but not necessarily the skills to use them, Lucy had her “lightbulb” moment. What nurses in developing countries are missing is the encouragement and the resources to further their nursing education – and Lucy has the skills and ability to give them both.
Lucy has seized the opportunity to make a difference, and she’s committed to the long-term goal of improving nursing standards across the developing world. It’s a big goal, yes, but with Lucy’s passion and the incredible generosity already shown by thousands of Nurse. Teach. Reach. supporters, we’re all confident it can happen.
