Sharon K. Titus, PhD, MSN, RN, served as a missionary transcultural nurse for 16 years, working primarily in Indonesia, Thailand, and Germany. In Indonesia she designed and implemented a small medical clinic that provided nursing care for those who lived in the community. In Thailand, she served as a nursing consultant at Chiang Mai University. While in Germany, Titus served as Director of Nursing for a small Christian international school for missionary students. Currently, Titus and her husband are helping to build a medical clinical in Rwanda, to become the first healthcare facility in this nation to proclaim the gospel of Christ as they provide exceptional healthcare to Rwandans. Her nursing passion has been coordinating and conducting medical clinics in diverse settings among many racial/ethnic groups throughout the world. Her academic desire is to prepare students to be competent nurses who integrate Christian care into their nursing practice that they may impact the world boldly for Christ.
