Meet Nneoma Abassah a nurse and owner of a leading Nursing Agency in Nigeria; Alpha Nursing Agency



Nneoma Silverline Abassah is a nurse, social worker and a geriatric care giver whose nursing experience spans through some 20 years plus in various health establishment but fruitfully and passionately in caring for the sick and aged with various age related challenges - such as dementia, parkinsonism, stroke, Alzheimers disease, heart related conditions, Arthritis ,Cancers etc.


She has touched many lives in a very fulfilling way. Maybe because as she told me, her passion since childhood has always been helping people in need with or without price tag. For her, nursing was the natural driver to achieve this and fulfill her destiny.

THE IDEA OF NURSING AGENCY IS NOT SO COMMON IN NIGERIA. HOW DID YOURS COME ABOUT?
Alpha Nursing Agency was borne to meet needs and fill a gap left too wide by the society. As a nurse, it pains seeing old people helpless and in not too good a state. In 2002, Alpha Nursing Agency idea was born to meet that need.

HOW DOES ALPHA NURSING AGENCY OPERATE?
Alpha Nursing agency is a health maintenance organisation that takes care of the sick, new born and elderly using nurses of all cadre.


Presently we operate in the homes of the care receivers. We also supply nurses to Companies, schools and industries. We have an arm of recruitment for international organisations. Medical escorts within and outside Nigeria. And much more


Alpha nursing agency currently operates in over 10 states caring for averagely hundreds of aged with great testimonies. When people meet us newly the question is where have you been all this while because the relief and transformation is so tangible.


Really goal of ALPHA NURSING AGENCY is to add innovation in care giving for the elderly.

RECENTLY YOUR AGENCY RECEIVED AN INTERNATIONAL AWARD. TELL US ABOUT IT.
To the glory of God, we received an international award for quality service and health delivery at Geneva Switzerland. This just teaches that diligence speaks.

RECENTLY SOME NURSES BEGAN WORK IN IRELAND THROUGH YOUR AGENCY. HOW GENUINE IS IT? IS THE OPPORTUNITY OPEN TO EVERYONE? IF SO WHAT QUALIFICATIONS DO PEOPLE NEED?
The opportunity to work in Ireland is a collaborative project with a health recruitment agency in Ireland. It's open to health workers but chiefly qualified and licensed nurses with international English proficiency test called IELTs

WHAT ARE YOUR FUTURE PLANS?
My call is make the people we care for happy, keep the safe and comfortable. I will continue to do that and more God helping me. All I want is that my life and Alpha nursing continue to give glorify God!

Thank you
