Hey everyone! I am a new member and also a nursing student. I am asking for help due to the fact that I am looking to travel as a health care vounteer internationally during my next summer break (kind of like making up for the no-option of study abroad in nursing school). I speak spanish and would prefer to travel to central or south america. I know that some people disagree with a student traveling to help out a clinics where professionals are in greater need. However, I've had experience traveling with medical groups before during high school to indigent populations not only in central america but in america as well (only lasting for a few weeks each) and I fell in love with international/rural health care!
those trips only lasted for a couple weeks where as I am now looking for trips that last around 4 months.
I was wondering if anyone is involved in or knows of any medical clinic websites, groups or programs lasting from 4-6 months accepting students to travel with them. Thank you so much!!
