I haven't been on a mission trip as an RN (still a student) but I have heard of the Summer Medical Institute. This summer it's going to Peru - nursing students, med students (from different schools), practicing health care professionals,... I don't have the web site address handy, but it's associated with Vanderbilt and West End Community Church.

Went to Costa Rico when i was still an LPN with a Doctor that i worked for. Very little legal problems because of the slight regulation in that country. Spent 2 weeks doing a little nursing and a lot of construction on a new clinic that was being built. Hard work, tough climate, impossible living conditions. Can't wait to go again!
