If money is not the issue, you might consider this: Rns are needed in developing countries. International RN Travel companies exist for this purpose. An RN can work disaster relief with the Red cross, the Peace Corps, Unicef, with the US Armed Forces, or can travel to all parts of the world - even to the most remote places - as an international travel nurse to help where the help is most needed. There is an excellent article on this in this months American Journal of Nursing Career Guide Issue.(Jan 2001) If you can use the library at your nursing school
or a teaching hospital, they will probably have it. I believe the link for the website to the Journal is also on the American Nurses Association website. http://www.ana.org
There are a lot of nursing opportunities besides the hospital in your town. Rns are needed.
