RN who wants to volunteer abroad, recommendations??


I am an RN who is interested in volunteering abroad and was looking to get advice from people that have done this before. Also, there are so many companies when you google, I'm looking for advice on who to work with!

I volunteered with the organization MEDICO. They do medical volunteer trips to Central America. I highly recommend them -very organized, safe, excellent experience overall.

I’m having a similar problem. I’m looking for a short term placement as a nurse volunteering in a third world area. I have been trying to research it. However they are so many sites its hard to know which is the best and safest option.

Thank you
