Although my time in Malawi is winding down I feel like my journey will continue for some time. I am so excited by the progress that we have made and look forward to the ongoing collaboration.
As far as cancer education for nurses in Malawi, it could not have happened at a better time. With cancer rates increasing and the hospitals adding oncology as a new specialty, integrating oncology into the nursing curriculum is extremely important and will hopefully better equip the nurses to manage oncology patients.
The colleagues I have met and the friends I have made I will miss, but with email and Skype it will be easier to keep in touch…plus my return in six months will be here before I know it.
As I watch the beautiful sun set this evening I am reminded of just how beautiful this world is, no matter where you are…
