I know that many of you are interested in international volunteering, so you might be interested in Unite For Sight, which has many volunteer opportunities for nurses and nursing students in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe for the Fall, Winter, and Spring. Some opportunities are still available for the Summer, too. Opportunities are available in rural villages, urban locations, and refugee camps (including in the tsunami region). You can read about all of the opportunities at http://www.uniteforsight.org/intl_volunteer/
From the Unite For Sight website:
Unite For Sight volunteers implement outreach programs to prescribe
eyeglasses, implement eye health education, and screen for cataracts,
pterygium, and other eye diseases. All patients with eye disease are
referred to the closest quality eye clinic for diagnosis, treatment, and
surgery. This new form of delivery enables sustainable programs while
simultaneously reducing all of the barriers to health care, including
financial, transportation, and education hindrances. Unite For Sight's
model also reduces costs and expands the ability of all people to "Unite
For Sight" and help in the fight against blindness.
