Women Helping Women

In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, nurse-midwife Anny Pashi is making an impact!

Throughout her pregnancy, Mboo Sukabanto received the care she needed in her community and at her local health center to stay malaria-free, thanks to the TIPTOP program. When labor began, Mboo had nurse-midwife Anny Pashi by her side, helping her deliver a healthy baby girl—women helping women in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

I am a nurse first. A nurse foremost. And though I have embraced new titles, like businesswoman, advocate, and entrepreneur, my passion for nursing is as strong today as it was when I began my nursing career. In this year of the nurse and the midwife, we need to showcase energetic, broadly-educated nurse leaders who can identify and analyze problems, develop solutions and ACT! Empowered nurses who demand a seat at the table in decision-making and who can deliver high quality, patient-centered health care to all in need.

Our Friends at JHU Want to share nursing's Next big Idea

Like Florence Nightingale in the 1800s, the future is calling us to light the way in health care. Our goal: Change the narrative on nursing. Erase misperceptions about what and who we truly are, expand the understanding of the breadth of our growing profession, eliminate notions that come between us and excellent health care.
