Courageous Hearts informs Barco’s NightingalesSM Foundation’s Community of Compassion ­— our supporters — about our work, our partners and the evolving needs of those we serve, while providing news and insights as an advocate for nurses and their profession. With four unique categories — ReSurge International, Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times, Haiti and Advocacy — you can easily immerse yourself in the topics you find most relevant or explore new ideas.

  • Camp Ronald McDonald: Share the joy of the children, families and  volunteers at Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times while  learning the facts about pediatric cancer.
  • Haiti: Revel in the  beautiful smiles of the children of Haiti as you read stories of their  heartfelt gratitude and the impact of our work.
