Medical Mission Sisters joyfully celebrate National Nurses Week in the United States.  Close to 50 of our current North American Associates and Sisters are trained nurses, and have cared for thousands of individuals around the world.  We are grateful to them, and all nurses, who offer compassion, skill, and fortitude as a healing presence to patients and their families.
