    I have been to Cambodia twice and China once with a church group. I would like to go as a nurse though. Do you know of any groups going to Tibette this year? I have been a nurse for 10 yrs with med surge, oncology and neuro experience. What kind of experience is needed to participate? Thank you.

    I don't know of any going there, you can research different missions online and see if you can find any information. On my medical trips, as long as you know how to do basic triage, give immunizations, etc you are set! It all depends on the type of medical trip you are going on because some do clinics, some go to provide surgeries to those who can't afford it, etc. We did clinics for different villages and worked with an organization that has hundreds of orphans and we helped get their medical records up to date and provide immunizations, etc. If I remember correctly, we did over 800 immunizations in just over 2 weeks time!

    I also have been to Cambodia... what part of Cambodia were you in?
