ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO, UNITED STATES, March 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- When we think of a career in nursing we imagine women dressed in white working alongside the doctors passively assisting them but the truth a monumental number of nurses do so much more than simply work in a hospital environment. Some of these individuals live heroically making certain to assiduously reach out to help as many people as they can in other parts of the world.
Carol Head is a registered nurse and volunteer for under privileged communities in rural Ghana.
“Nursing has handed me a tremendous amount of opportunities,” says Carol. “Mainly I have had the magnificent chance to travel the world as a result of working in Saudi Arabia and it has been immensely gratifying.”
For many years Carol’s mother was a well- regarded nursing oncologist and her chief source of inspiration. Starting her career in labor and delivery Carol worked as a nurse and educator for three years in Saudi Arabia during the mid- 80s. After returning to the states she obtained her Graduate degree, obtained her first management position with the St Joseph hospital system in Albuquerque. She subsequently returned to Saudi Arabia in 1998 doing an additional ten years in management until she returned to the states in 2008. Presently she has been doing Interim Management in maternal child care and volunteering with a non- for profit organization the V.I.L.L.A.G.E. Projects in Ghana working with the Medical Centre, a woman’s empowerment group and Becky’s Foundation which provides an orphanage and school in the village of Senya- Baraku in the Volta Area of Ghana.
“I’m super excited to be returning to Ghana in August and taking my granddaughter with me to gain the prolific experience of volunteering and how different life is like in other parts of the world,” says Carol. “In Ghana there are little villages made of dirt roads, no running water or even washing machines, people clean their clothes by hand and hang them out to dry. Most of us from the United States would consider them deprived and impoverished but truthfully they seem happier than we are because they live in such close- knit communities while here we are regrettably more disconnected.”
According to Carol, people are much too focused on making money and steadfastly believe wealth is not the most important requirement for a happy life, instead we should care more about how humanely and compassionately we treat one another.
“My biggest hope is that the people whose lives I’ve touched are better for me having been in it,” says Carol. “My chief focus has always been women and children’s health and absolutely where my heart has revolved around.”
If you choose nursing as a career and your heart is not empathetic and altruistic then it’s not your calling.
“We should embrace all people as expressions of God,” says Carol. “I wholeheartedly believe there is good in everyone and we can have a world of peace, prosperity and unconditional love for all. I don’t understand why people can’t simply respect one another’s opinion. We can agree to disagree and if we don’t get along we don’t have to disparage each other. Simply try to live by example and we will have outstanding coherence and tranquility.”
CUTV news will feature Carol Head in an interview with Jim Masters on Friday March 23rd at 12 noon EST.
