This paper is to study the contributions, analyze the professional handling of patients needs by the globally recognized a European, non-governmental organization Médecins Sans Frontiéres MSF-Spain, on Nurse Scheduling, through the most less cost effective and workload sharing techniques, in area called Pulka Community that is approximately 5killometers away from Camp Zero called Sambisa forrest, a former Boko Haram stronghold that was formally declared as the insurgents hideout location or headquaters referred as the Caliphate on the 7th August, 2014 by their Leadership. The most difficult and highly volatile, risk area in Borno State Northeast- Nigeria that was classified as a red zone by the security intelligence reports. The task of Nurse Scheduling to meet up with the community counselling, traumatized patients by the armed gunmen, hetherto the hectic and herculean task, when considered the services rendered during the crisis period at the peak of the insurgency, Military hostility and subsequent Government declaration and pronouncement of curfew on all sorts of movements sometimes between the 1000hours to 0700hours without any provision for alternative arrangement for the special health-care workers. We proposed a model to improve both the process and the quality of scheduling techniques. The objective is to maximize the fairness of the schedule among personnel. A numerical illustration and example of workload scheduling for a maximum of 8 hours is obtained and solved by correct simplex method, through elementary row operation, the hospital needs a minimum of professional nurses to meet up with the patients needs to be more effective and efficient.
