For nursing internships abroad, interns work with nursing staff in Clinics, Hospitals, Community Centers and School Nursing offices.
Depending on what country you choose, you will shadow a physician, gain surgical experience in the emergency room, staff the OB/GYN department, or work with long-term care patients. You can take on a medical internship in Spain and work with some of the top surgeons in Europe. In Ecuador, interns will float all departments in a well-run, busy Municipal Hospital in Ambato.
For example, one of our candidates in Ecuador, worked in a hospital and rotated through the General Medicine floor, Pediatrics and Emergency Medicine. They had the opportunity to observe different types of surgeries, births, and c-sections. He assisted with minor procedures and saw many disease-states that they might not encounter in the United States.
