Ntiense Inokon

As an alumnus from the University of Miami (UM) School of Nursing, Ntiense Inokon participated in student organizations and leadership programs such as the KAOS dance team, the African Student’s Union, the Yellow Rose Society, Hurricanes Help the Hometown, and The University of Miami Horizons Program.

In 2007, she decided to use her pediatric nursing knowledge to impact the youth in Adabraka, Ghana where she collaborated with a high school friend who specialized in public health and who was a Ghanaian national.  Together, they traveled to several schools and churches in Adabraka educating youth about HIV/Aids.

Ntiense’s nursing experience also proved valuable in the South Florida community. In 2008, she volunteered as a key note speaker with Abstinence Between Strong Teens (A.B.S.T.), a non-profit organization educating teens girls about the Human Papiloma Virus (HPV) and abstinence.

Amidst various service projects, Ntiense continued to pursue higher education successfully graduating from Barry University with a Master’s Degree in Nursing Administration in December 2008. She was promoted to Nurse Manager at Miami Children’s Hospital (MCH) in March of the following year. Then, in February 2010, she led a small team of MCH nurses and physicians on a medical mission to Haiti shortly after the devastating earthquake. There they worked at a field hospital organized by the University of Miami’s Project Medishare and provided acute medical care to children of all ages including infants born at the field hospital.

Ntiense’s most recent community project was with the Leadership Miami program through the Miami Chamber of Commerce. Her group, Miami In Motion,  raised funds for the children of ARC South Florida, a non-profit organization that provides support for families with disabled children.

Ntiense remains an active member of the Gamma Delta Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. and is currently the advisor for the MU NU Chapter at the University of Miami. She strives to embody their motto: Greater Service, Greater Progress.
