Donating Nursing Texts Overseas



  1. I am moving out of state and sadly, all my precious library of nursing and medical textbooks will not be making the journey. There is only so much room on that moving van.

    However, I would love to donate them to an organization that might be able to ship them overseas to nurses in Iraq or Africa or Indonesia- or anywhere. I am talking about basic nursing texts, care plan books, clinical skills books. They are circa 2003 or earlier, so they are not too out of date. However, I am positive that current nursing students in the US are using more updated versions.

    If you have any info or contacts, please post them for me. I am in Oregon.

    Thanks so much

    My grandpa donated his old med school textbooks to Russia. I'm sorry that I can't give you a lead, but I commend you for your gift.

    RavenAngel, I sent you a PM. I know a nursing student in Africa who could use your books. Check your PM. I made an error on the PM also, she goes by the name 2lip on this site. Thanks.
