About Program

This is your chance to undertake a once-in-a-lifetime, short-term educational placement in a hospital in the developing world.

You'll spend time in one of our overseas partner hospitals and get eye-opening clinical experience. Your trip will help you realize your potential as a nurse and help give you a competitive edge during your career.

You'll see, firsthand, the unique challenges that healthcare professionals face, like:

- Sterilizing and reusing 'disposable' equipment
- Families providing bedside care, including manual ventilation
- Lack of patient privacy, with multiple patients sharing a single bed
- The use of traditional herbal medicine in place of modern techniques
- Basic care techniques by manual intubation without pain relief

All you need to do is choose one of our destinations in Asia or Africa, and we'll customize your internship based on your skills and interests. And you'll return home as a more competent, well-rounded nurse as a result.
