Experienced volunteer nurses are needed to accompany pediatric surgical teams to Honduras. Generally, surgeons select their entire surgical team of volunteers. On occasion, we have to go outside of our network to find nursing help- specific specialties in which we often need volunteers include recovery nurses for pediatric spine surgical teams, and first assist nurses for pediatric orthopedic surgical teams. Nurses should expect to participate in a week-long surgical trip, often with long surgical hours. Recovery nurses should be prepared to work with a team of recovery nurses to provide round-the-clock care.
Spanish is a plus. All nurses must be currently licensed to practice nursing, and must regularly provide the same type of work at home that they would be providing abroad. We will require that nurses have an active passport and that prospective volunteers share their CV/resume.
