Introduction- OR Nurse/dates 3-15th Feb 19

Hi, My name is Trish and I am an OR nurse from Melbourne Australia. I am joining the crew from 3rd Feb till the 15th Feb 2019. Just wondering if anyone else is also going these dates? I'm super excited and can't wait. I have been involved in medical aid for many years but this is my first time on the Mercy Ship. Looking forward to it :)

    Hi Trish! Im so excited for your time of service on-board. Many blessings to you.

  • I will be in the OR as a nurse on these dates as well! I am coming from Houston, Texas!! Look forward to meeting you! I have traveled to Ukraine a few times, but this will be my first trip to Africa, and first trip with Mercy Ships. So excited!

  • Hi Sarah,

    That's so exciting, I'm very much looking forward to meeting you. Please keep in contact.

    Kind Regards

  • I am wondering if I could possible stay an extra night on the Mercy Ship. My flight unfortunately leaves a day later. I haven’t booked any flights as yet. Who would be the best person to ask.

    Thank you so much
