International Nursing NGOs

  1. Hi!

    I'm surfing for international nursing NGOs, similar to MSF, with presence in conflict areas worldwide. Does anybody knows some?

    Not sure how much experience that you have, but most of those require at least two years of experience as an RN. And there are only a few that are specific to nurses. Most use all different levels of providers. Nurses, physicians, dentists, etc.

    I'm recent graduate and still has to take my board. MSF needs 2 and IMC requires 3 years of professional experience. Not a blue moon's chance for me...

    As a new grad, even if an American grad; you are going to need two years of experience minimum at the very least.

    Schooling/training is not the same as work experience. You need to learn how to function on your own........many times you would be the only nurse in your area.

    Please take the time to get experience first.
    Best of luck to you.

    Will do that. Although I already have 10 years of experience in working with communities and functioning on my own in remote areas. But i guess it's different when you work as a nurse.

    Thanks.

    Very different from nursing, and you will see that when you actually begin to work as an RN.
