regulations in foreign waters

  1. Hi, I've been researching for a long time and can't find any information on American nurses who are operating in international waters. If someone were in the British Virgin Islands, for example, would they need British licensing? what regulations apply there?

    I don't think that counts as "water" if they are on an island. I think when you mean "water" you are thinking more cruise ship?

    The islands themselves are a British territory, but most of the tourism is operated on boats. Assuming the islands and waters surrounding them are considered British, what determines the treatment protocols- and can an American nurse be covered under them?

    In what capacity are you thinking about? Working on a cruise ship? Tourist? Or working on the island?
