Promoting Health in Haiti




Our goal is to improve health and wellness for the citizens of Haiti by educating highly skilled nurses.



Nurses are the front-line of health and wellness in a society.  They are the primary source of care for individuals who are suffering and vulnerable.  There is a critical need for increased support for the nursing community in Haiti as they continue to deal with the health and well-being of their country.  Currently, the education of nurses in Haiti is limited to a diploma level.  Facilitating and furthering the education of nurses will launch the advancement of the healthcare system in Haiti.


Who We Are:

Joanna Hofmann EdD, RN   
Carmelle Bellefleur PhD, RN (Hunter Alumna)
