I applied to MSF after working on a med-surg floor (primarily surg) for about 3 years at an academic teaching hospital and got rejected. I think they want me to go on my own to another country, maybe on a medical mission or 7-10 days trip before MSF will consider me. Just wanted to send out the heads up!

I'm a current education PCV in Africa who is looking at going into nursing BSN/MSN after service. Most of the PCV RN's, at least in this part of the world, are placed into an educative role. That being said, once at your village you are on your own and don't have much (if any) supervision, if you catch my drift.

One of our PhD students was a PCV in Burkina Faso. He entered the PC after he had worked as a midwife for several years (yes, one of those rare male graduates of midwifery programs). He is now looking at improving prenatal care / new baby programs to women of color in urban areas --- a topic that traces to his PC experiences in Africa.

We have had several other RPCVs in our Direct Entry MSN program (a second degree program) who were health educators in Africa and Latin America.
