Taking your Elective Placement in Nursing with Projects Abroad

As a nursing student taking your elective abroad, you will experience big differences in the local medical practices from what you see in the West. Placements can suffer from a lack of staff or undertrained staff and medical facilities are often under-resourced due to lack of funding.

Many placements will not have the up-to-date equipment you are used to. In addition, due to lack of funds to pay for medical care, patient cases may be in their advanced stages and you may witness some shocking medical conditions. What you will see are highly dedicated and caring medical staff who do their very best in the limited working conditions they have.

Our in-country staff will work with you and your university to tailor make your placement. You could choose to rotate through departments or focus on your specialism. Your placement will be chosen to best fulfil the requirements of your elective module.

You will learn from experienced senior medical staff who will also supervise you throughout your placement. They will ensure you have a worthwhile time in their medical/care facility. You will be given a dedicated supervisor who is a qualified member of staff. They will be able to discuss specific case studies with you for your coursework.

If you are not an elective student or would rather take part in our regular Nursing projects, please go to our Nursing Projects page.

Please be aware that most universities have deadlines by which time your Elective application paperwork must be completed. If your university needs information on the hospital or clinic in which you will be placed, or requires forms to be signed by your project supervisor, we strongly advise completing our application form at least one month before this deadline. We can only provide this detailed information once you have applied and been accepted onto an Elective placement with us.

If you have any questions please call us on 058-7821521.
