Hello. I'm not sure where to post this-but I will be going on a 3 week medical/nursing mission trip to the Himalayan region of Northwestern India/Tibet border next summer and am very excited as I have never done anything like this before. We will be traveling to numerous remote villages in the area, setting up 1-2 day medical clinics and treating the people who come to our clinics. I'm also a little nervous since I have never done this before and don't know anyone who is going, but I really want to do this and am excited! Has anyone gone on a medical mission trip before? Where did you go and what did you do there? Hope to hear from all of you!
Thanks. Oh, and the trip is just 2 days after I graduate from my NP program too!
It's going to be a very busy time of year for me.

That is so exciting! I am envious! I am a world traveler, but have never done it in a nursing capacity. Always as a backpacker, or teaching in Korea. Now I am in nursing school and plan to do some mission trips after a few years of experience. Good luck to you! This will be life-changing. And so helpful for those communities. Be safe and enjoy!
Best wishes!! (I'd love to hear the report when you return!)
By the way, CONGRATS on your NP school completion!
