Does anyone here know what I should do if I want to apply for an internship at an American hospital? I am currently living in Denmark and would like to spend a few months of my study in an American hospital. Does anyone have any experiences in this field? Please help me.

Honestly, I'm not sure. The only thing I can think of is to look at webistes of various Universities in an area of the country you're interested. Write to their admissions people. They may have some info for you. I don't think I've heard of exchange programs for nursing.

Check with your faculty and advisors. I know our program has a "Transcultural Nursing" course that takes place during the summer where we can go to
England, Haiti, and other locations within the U.S. (eg. Native American Indian Reservations, predominately hispanic populated areas, etc.) If there's not something already established within your school, perhaps a faculty member will know of someone in the U.S. that could arrange something for you. I know that's how we end up with new locations, just faculty networking. Hope this helps!
