    I am so excited to read this post! I will be going through IVHQ as well and volunteer nursing this March in Cuscu, Peru for a minimum of 3 weeks. Did you request an OB type specialty? That would be my dream and was wondering if you needed to try to plan that specialty ahead of time. I am a registered nurse in the US with about 18 months experience in a rehab hospital (not nursing home) working on floors with stroke patients, TBI, and spinal cord injury. Thanks for any advice!!!

    I love your story, very inspirational! I am interested in doing something similar and wanted to get more information from you on how you organized it. Also, I have no L & D experience but have been a nurse for 6 years and looking into making the transition into that specialty. I was wondering how much experience you had before you started this volunteer placement? In your opinion do you think it would be possible for me to volunteer without previous experience in L&D? I have beginning level Spanish but plan on getting Rosetta Stone to "brush up" and hopefully get to intermediate. Thanks so much!
