Update on Emily Scott's experience in Sierra Leone
Filling In The Blanks My colleague who was infected has tested negative for Ebola and been discharged from the National Institutes of Health. The 16 Americans being monitored as “high risk” contacts have all passed 21 healthy days. My cohort – the clinician...

Dora the Explorer Returns to Honduras!
Hi All,    I'm in the midst of a 2 month mission with MSF/Doctors Without Borders to explore the health situation all over Honduras.  With my partner Edgardo (who I met in Uganda in 2006!) and a driver, we're visiting all of the hospitals in the country, so...

Home and Healthy
Posted on   March 23, 2015   by   Emily Scott As some of you already know, I arrived home in Seattle a few days ago. It is a bit earlier than I was planning on leaving Sierra Leone, which is deeply disappointing to me. Since one of our PIH colleagues tested...

Aminata and Baby Boy
by   Emily Scott Written Friday March 6 On the day Abass died, I was on my way back to Freetown where I have been assigned to work at the holding center for pregnant women for the rest of my time here. Let me explain what that means: With limited resources,...

Foday and Abass
Posted on   March 2, 2015   by   Emily Scott Written Sunday 3/1 The only word I have been able to find to describe this experience so far is surreal. Today it became real for me. Today was our first day actually treating patients in Maforki, PIH’s Ebola Tre...

Stairway Troll
Written Wendesday, 2/25 I am currently taking up residence on the stairway landing between the third and fourth floors of our guest house, where the wifi has been most reliably good today. It’s a nice way to meet all the PIH-ers I don’t know yet, as they pa...

Save the Date: Saturday May 30!
Posted on   March 26, 2015   by   Emily Scott Transitioning to home life has been a bit strange. In my heart, I wasn’t ready to leave Sierra Leone. I wish I could still be there doing good work, falling exhausted into bed each night and looking forward to h...

Update
Posted on   March 16, 2015   by   Emily Scott I apologize for my silence over the last several days. I’m sure most of you have seen in the news that a PIH clinician was infected with Ebola. I have been reeling from the news since it was announced, and strug...

Abass’s Smile
  by   Emily Scott I arrived for my evening shift at Maforki on Monday anxious to hear how my patients had fared since I’d last seen them 24 hours before. I expected (and part of me hoped) to hear that Foday had passed away and was no longer suffering. No o...

Trained and Ready
Written Friday 2/27 Those of you who know me know that I’m always freezing; in the middle of the summer you’ll still likely find me curled up by the fireplace. So maybe I have the ideal constitution for working in an ETU. On Thursday and Friday we donned fu...

National Ebola Training Academy Begins
We made it to Sierra Leone! It was touch and go for a minute in DC, where we sat on the tarmac for 3 hours while they plowed the runway and de-iced our plane. As we watched the time for our layover in Brussels trickle away, I started to get pretty nervous –...

Story
Tagline
We are a 501(c)(3) non profit organization created by nurses.
Introduction

We are nurses from different walks of life and different nursing career paths. We each stumbled upon volunteer and humanitarian nursing in our own unique ways. When our paths crossed, One Nurse At A Time was created from our desire to help other nurses get involved. It is our goal for One Nurse At A Time to reach out to nurses and help them get involved in the humanitarian and volunteer arena.


"To do what nobody else will do, a way that nobody else can do, in spite of all we go through; is to be a nurse." ~ Rawsi William
