When I first began nursing school my biggest motivator was the idea that eventually I would be able to travel overseas and share my skills/knowledge with others. I've been working as a critical care RN for a year now and realize that in order to pursue this goal, I need to be proactive about it.
I have begun researching various organizations online and attended a couple fundraisers for various groups however I am not sure exactly how to get involved. Could any of you provide information about how you became involved with medical mission work, the costs/fees involved, the organizations you traveled with or just share your experience with me?
I am most interested in this point in traveling to Africa however I would go wherever there is a need.
I'm currently in Liberia, settling in to life on board a hospital ship committed to bringing hope and healing to the forgotten poor of West Africa. PM me if you want info.
I could talk about Africa forever. =)
