Partners in Health has many opportunities for volunteers. They are based in Boston but have operations in Haiti,

Lesotho, Malawi, Peru, Russia, Rwanda, the United States, the Dominican Republic, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Guatemala, and Burundi. I looked at some of the volunteer opportunities and all the ones I looked at required experience.

Unfortunately, no. I have no appropriate nursing experience. Graduated almost 4 years ago and have only worked at a couple of seasonal jobs and a couple short term stints in assisted living.

I have done volunteer nursing trips. I believe Project Helping Hands will take student nurses.
