The Togo Nursing Education Program was begun in 1997 as a ministry of the Karolyn Kempton Memorial Christian Hospital. Togolese men and women, strong believers involved in their churches and recommended by their local churches, are trained as nurses in order to work in our mission hospital with the goal of using their nursing profession as a ministry for Christ. These nurses are involved with compassionate care in all dimensions: spiritual, physical, emotional, social, and intellectual. They are daily at the patients’ bedsides, sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ and meeting physical needs.
The Nursing Education Program is a three-year program involving classroom teaching, skills practice, and clinical experience. In order for students to study full-time rather than divide their attention between school and extracurricular work, the Nursing Education account provides a stipend for each student.
