Experience needed to work with Doctors Without Borders (MSF)

  1. 0 Hi,

    I'm Max, I'm a junior at UNC-CH. So last week I just found out I got into the nursing program at UNC! I'm very excited to start on my path to become a nurse.

    My ultimate goal is to work for Doctors Without Borders/MSF and other organizations with similar goals. Who has worked for MSF or other organizations like this, and what kind of experience is generally encouraged? I feel some of the obvious experience needed would be with the ER or ICU, but I've also heard that focuses in pediatrics is encouraged as well?

    Any wisdom helps!

    Moved to volunteer nursing forum in the Nursing Specialties section. There are several threads on working with DWB/MSF, in fact one of the members of all nurses has offered awesome descriptions of experiences as an active nurse volunteer with DWB/MSF and recommendations for clinical work experience in addition to minimum education/experience required by the organization.
