Nazareth Academic School of Nursing

Samir’s Story

Samir graduated from Nazareth school of Nursing. Before he started studying, he lived in Italy, studying to become a priest and serve in the ministry. His plans changed, when his family members took ill. This forced him to cut his studies short and come home to Nazareth.

Samir had to think again about what his future might look like. In order to support his family, he made the decision to become a nurse and to study with us. Throughout his first year of studies with us, his close relatives deteriorating health weighed heavy on his mind. We as staff and his class mates were able to give Samir the support he needed to carry on.

Despite his difficuties, Samir remained determined to complete his studies.

On his graduation, he stood tall and proud, addressing the whole room on behalf of his classmates.

Today Samir works in one of the largest hospitals in the centre of Israel. He is a credit to the nursing profession and in particular to the Nazareth Academic School of Nursing.

As a Trust, whether it be the hospital, the School of Nursing, the Nazareth village or the team at Serve Nazareth, we continue to pray for Samir, his classmates and all students at the Nazareth School of Nursing so that all our students and graduates can be messengers of healing and love in Jesus name.
