Nurses are professionals who care for the ill or injured persons, provide preventive health care to well persons. Nursing is one of the most demanding professions, the competition is high and takes long working hours.
An overseas nursing internship will have a decisive advantage over non-mobile peers. You are exposed to different practices, environment, ailments, culture, and people which will help in your clinical practices.
Organizing your nursing elective abroad can be daunting. Taking this step is your first major opportunity to shape your own medical training, develop your individuality, and be the sort of nurse you want to be.
An overseas nursing placement offers participants the unique opportunity to gain work experience in underprivileged areas. This is nursing in a different landscape with challenges that will test your skills and patience to the hilt.
“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less,” Marie Curie.
This quote from Marie Curie encapsulates the importance of your presence to poor people who feel distressed and helpless when confronted by the gigantic issue of global health. You may not be able to provide the medical assistance of a doctor, you may encounter difficulties during your stint. But your noble intentions will leave a good impression to locals that there are people in this world who cares.
