Volunteer Nursing

  1. 0
    Hi all - I'm a RN in Florida and I'm looking to volunteer some time (2 weeks) in Africa next summer. I'm hoping someone has already had that experience and can recommend a reputable organization to go through. I'm interested in doing HIV / AIDS work, possibly in Kenya or Tanzania. Any suggestions or advice is greatly appreciated.

    Cheers!

    I've heard good things about Doctors without Borders, but I know they require a minimum stay in your placed area and I'm certain that it's much longer than two weeks (I think it's something like six months..)

    I spent a year volunteering in Ethiopia - but it doesn't sound like that's what you are looking for.

    From the research that I did, I suspect that if you want to go for a short mission, you'll have to pay your own way.

    I recommend you start looking at the International Medical Vounteers Association:
