Nursing Electives Abroad

Nursing Electives Abroad

Travelling abroad/overseas to undertake a nursing elective placement is a unique opportunity to connect with like minded nursing students and professionals in healthcare field from all over the world.

A nursing internship abroad helps you improve your nursing skills and ensures that you stand out among your peers in clinical skills and knowledge. Apart from the hospital internships, we also offer you an opportunity to immerse yourself in a new culture,volunteer your skills with the less fortunate as well as visit various adventurous destinations. 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. This is rewarding to both nursing students or a Registered Nurse ( RN) undertaking a nursing mission trip abroad. 


The Nursing Electives Abroad with us are offered in over 10 clinical sites spread out across Kenya and Tanzania. 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. 

If you are looking for a nursing elective placement overseas or a nursing mission trip abroad reach out to us for a tailor made internship abroad. 


Beyond my Imagination

My experience with Elective Africa was beyond what I could ever have imagined. My nerves before arrival subsided the minute I was greeted at the airport by an EA staff. I had so much hands on experience in the rural hospital of Migori,Kenya and got an opportunity to to do things I would never have the chance to do in Australia. This is by far one of the best things I have done fro my Nursing career and would recommend this to any health professional willing to take the next step. I was always made to feel safe at home here in Kenya. David was such an amazing Coordinator and Daisy made all the nice food for me.. Its truly a life changing experience!
