Does anyone out there do medical escort services for travellers? I've heard that there are opportunities for RNs to fly to foregin countries on commercial flights to retrieve travellers who are ill or injured abroad and transport them home. This sounds like an interesting opportunity. I love to fly and would like to be a flight nurse on an air medical service. This sounds like an interesting opportunity as well. I've also heard that you can accumulate frequent flyer miles as a benefit. My wife and I love to travel and I thought this might be a fun job and a good way to get FF miles so that we can be able to travel more as well.

I have been doing these Commercial Medical Escorts for 5+ years. I have been around the world and back again. It is not the most medically challenging field of nursing, but your patients are extreamly greatful. You certainly have to be quick on your feet and an independent logistical guru. Traveling internationally or abroad always has it's challenges, but when you have a patient to care for at the same time, it really takes you up a notch. Is is a great "job" with lots of adventure.
