Nursing Electives to Kenya
A nursing elective abroad overseas is a unique opportunity to connect with likeminded students and nursing professionals in the healthcare field from other parts of the world. Whether you are student in nursing school or a Registered Nurse (RN) seeking to give back your nursing skills, this is a rewarding opportunity for you.
A nursing elective with us gives you an opportunity for hands on experience in the nursing field under mentorship and supervision in a differentiated and developing healthcare system.
With the limited resources in a developing country, both infrastructure and human capital, you will have the opportunity for supervised hands on nursing experiences in nursing care and other bedside procedures.
Our programs not only help you improve your nursing skills but also tailored in such a way that they make you stand out among your peers in clinical skills and knowledge.
Apart from the hospital internships, we we also offer you an opportunity to immerse yourself with the local community through various activities that we organize. You have the opportunity to give back to the society and appreciate humanity through visiting the children orphanages and the local schools & community interacting and giving talks on reproductive health or take part in hygiene clinics

You will therefore have an opportunity to choose from a variety of rural locations, urban placements and coastal clinical sites. On the hospital internships, you will be under mentorship and supervision by a qualified nursing professional and other healthcare providers who ensure that you get the best nursing elective experience. .
