In 2015 a group of Christian nurses, business men and women from Connect Church in Cape Town, met together for the first time. They shared a deep concern for the critical shortage of professional and specialty nurses currently employed by the National Department of Health – NDoH. After many hours of research, meeting with leaders in various Public Hospitals and the Health Department, The Exceptional Nurse Campaign – Campaign TEN was born.
We hope to see EXCEPTIONAL NURSING CARE practised by compassionate, committed, competent and courageous professionals in every hospital and clinic in South Africa.
Furthermore, we would also like to see the patient to nurse ratio decrease to a responsible figure: 10 to 1.
