I've looked for this a lot! Not many places are going to be interested in mentoring a new graduate who isn't even fluent in the language.Guatemala is a very inexpensive country to live in with great infrastructure for teaching Spanish and for volunteering. I studied there for one month after graduating from nursing school. My school administrator could have set me up with a volunteer position in a midwifery clinic where I would have been able to learn from the local midwives and assist with deliveries to a certain level for half the day, and then study Spanish the other half. I ended up opting not to do this for various reasons, but I know it would have been a great experience. My school was great. Most Guatemalan Spanish schools are very small, and mine felt like a little family. Good Guatemalan schools have a one-on-one tutoring format. They place you with a family and organize cultural activities and field trips with the students.When you get back, you won't have nursing experience, but you will have the language skills and you will have a good answer to "what have you been doing since you graduated?".Do it!!! I'm happy to provide more information about Guatemala if you're interested. Guatemala is cheaper and has better infrastructure than anywhere else I've found.
