International Medical Relief career advice

  1. 1 Hello all!

    I was hoping that this forum might afford me some truly needed information. I am hoping to pursue a future in international medical relief, MSF or the red cross.

    My Background:
    I have five years of pediatric trauma/emergency nursing experience, worked as nurse educator, clinical supervisor, and have worked on multiple organizational quality improvement teams that have resulted in published works. I am currently working on my first publication at this time. I am preparing a transfer to the PACU to gain some perioperative experience. My MSN in Nursing Education will be finished middle of 2015. I am working with my local red cross and training for a Disaster Management volunteer position.

    Any tips? What career moves would you recommend between now and completion of my masters? Is there a good avenue to begin working as an international nurse?

    I appreciate any and all information!

    Thank you,

    Hi there! This is an old post but wanted to ask you what you have been up to and if you have moved closer to your goal since January. I am interested in doing international aid work as well.

    Do you folks speak French? That's the number one suggestion I have... French speakers are needed more than any other language.
