On the Nursing in India project your time will be spent shadowing nurses, observing their daily activities and gaining a greater understanding of their profession. The nurses will be happy to show you all they can and share their knowledge, so be sure to take advantage of this by asking a lot of questions and taking notes!
You will be placed at either a large multi-specialty hospital or a nursing college. In either case, this project offers students interested in studying nursing an amazing opportunity to obtain valuable work experience learning about how nursing is practiced in the developing world.
During your placement, you will also have the chance to visit a leprosarium as well as have the opportunity to attend a medical outreach project. When you first arrive you will be briefed on India’s medical system and Indian culture to help you get the most out of your time abroad.
In India, you will stay at a hotel with other members of the group and Projects Abroad staff.
During the weekend you will get to experience more of the Indian culture by visiting some of the most interesting spots in Northern India including the majestic Taj Mahal in Agra and the captivating pink city of Jaipur. There will also be time for other leisure activities and souvenir shopping during the weekends and evenings.
