Registered Nurse

Being a nurse with MSF is demanding and rewarding. From basic healthcare to helping set up health posts, nurses are vital to our work. In many situations, nurses are the backbone of our medical operations.

Our registered nurses provide primary healthcare, establish and manage health posts, operate feeding centres and in/outpatient clinics and hospitals, plan and implement vaccination campaigns, and organise mother-child health programmes.

Training, supervising and managing local nursing staff or community health providers is a key responsibility.
