Your time will be spent shadowing nurses, observing their daily activities, and gaining a greater insight into their profession. You’ll be volunteering at either a large multi-speciality hospital or a nursing college. In both cases, this placement is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who wants to study nursing, offering you a unique insight into nursing in the developing world.
The nurses are eager to show you all they can and share their knowledge - do not hesitate to be proactive, asking them questions and taking notes!
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. On arrival you will be briefed on India’s medical system and on the Indian culture.
