UK student nurse wanting to do a 4 week summer placement in NYC

  1. Hi there,

    I'm currently a second year student nurse in the UK. During our third year if we pass everything and have limited sickness we have the opportunity to undertake a four week elective placement, which can be anywhere of our choosing.

    I am hoping to be able to undertake this within a hospital in the US preferably NYC, does anyone have any recommendations of NYC hospitals which would be a good learning experience for me? Or any tips/advice? Ideas on accommodation for four weeks?

    I would be really grateful for some feedback.

    Many Thanks

    I think you may struggle due to how nursing schools work in the US, insurance and permission to study in the US. You may want to consider talking to a few nursing schools in the US and see if you can do something with them but also look into getting permission to study in the US
