Nursing Internship in Asia


Our Nursing Internships Abroad will take you to amazing locations whilst providing you with valuable work experience to enhance your career and broaden future job opportunities. Taking place across India, Nepal, Vietnam and Cambodia, this volunteering program gives nursing students and pre-nursing students an eye opening insight into the medical world of a developing country.
Whether you’re taking a gap year to travel, looking for an internship to break up your studies, or about to go on a nursing course at university, our Nursing Internships Abroad are extremely beneficial to your nursing training. Working in a new environment not only helps you develop professionally, but everything you experience and everyone you meet along the way will help you grow personally. This is as much a spiritual journey as it is vocational, and all of our medical volunteers come back with much more than just work experience and a dazzling resume.

What your first week looks like

Arrival day

Your arrival weekend will be relaxed. We will pick you up from the airport and bring you to your accommodation. Depending on your time of arrival, our team will meet you and give you a local orientation so you can get to know the area you are living in. The next day you will be given health and safety briefing, culture orientation and project training before we take you in for your program.


Your project coordinator or a member of the team will be taking you to the project and after introductions you can get started. All your meals breakfast, lunch and dinner will be the accommodation unless you are at the project site or outside. In the evenings most volunteers spend it either exploring local sights, relaxing at the accommodation or preparing for projects.


Our local team will suggest many activities for you to do! Your weekends will be free for you to explore Kerala or India. We highly recommend you to utilise your time so you can get to see more of the country that you are visiting. We usually make recommendations based on past volunteer experiences. Its always better to book excursions in country with other volunteers.
