Nursing Volunteer Projects Overseas

Company : Projects Abroad
Duration: 2 weeks to 1 Year+
Approx Costs: 1000 to 3000+ £ Pound (UK)

Volunteers on a Projects Abroad Nursing placement will gain a great deal of valuable work experience alongside skilled nurses in developing countries.

Whether you're a university hopeful, studying for a degree in nursing, or a qualified nurse, we can find an overseas placement to suit your experience and interests.

As a volunteer, you will have an important role to play, no matter your previous experience. You will help to care for people in countries where hospitals and clinics may be understaffed or poorly resourced. You will be expected to become part of a team - shadowing your supervisor, assisting the local staff, and providing care to patients.

Nursing volunteers will be expected to help with daily tasks such as bandaging, taking blood pressure and the general care of the patients at the hospital / clinic.

We also welcome professionally qualified nurses for volunteering placements. These professional volunteering placements allow you to put your skills and expertise to the best use through assisting with the treatment of patients as well as exchanging knowledge and ideas with the local staff.

Projects Abroad Nursing Volunteer Projects Overseas Reviews

Adventure of a lifetime

I did a medical project in Nepal and definitely had great time. Discovering a country that is so different from mine taught me a lot. I've seen things I would never be able to experience anywhere else. Both hospital staff and other volunteers made that trip an unforgettable one. I highly recommend Projects Abroad and hope to go somewhere with them again.
