Hi folks. Any other expat nurses here? As of August, I live in South America. So far I've been working as an English teacher and not a nurse...curious to hear other people's experiences. I'm in an online MSN program (nurse educator) thinking about teaching online when I graduate. Doubt I will do bedside nursing here- practice is very different, enough that I would have difficulties adjusting.

Hi. I am a little late to this thread but I wanted to say I can relate! 2nd year in East Africa, and it is more difficult to find a job OR a volunteer position than most would imagine. 

We are lucky to have the health unit at the embassy, but there are 3 RN positions there, and they are all filled by people who aren't leaving any time soon.

It's a struggle!
