Volunteer in Nepal

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

If you’re pursuing a career in nursing, getting some work experience is the best way to get started. By taking you behind the scenes of a real hospital, we’ll show you what it’s really like to work on the front line of healthcare delivery in Nepal. Our nursing Internship program is designed to help you discover, first-hand, what being a nurse is really like. You’ll spend shadowing nursing staff in one of our partner hospitals.

During your internship, you will likely come into contact with many easily preventable diseases and illnesses, many of which originate from malnutrition. Departments you could work in include general health services, orthopedics, ophthalmology, dental services, ENT, x-ray, ultrasound, and neurology.

There are a variety of hospitals or centers where you could work. For instance, you could intern at a facility dedicated to the field of trauma, orthopedics, or rehabilitation. Alternatively, you may be based at a leading center for the functional mobility of physically disabled children. You may work in hospitals and other medical centers in and around either in Kathmandu, Pokhara or Banepa, Bhaktapur, Chitwan. Through observing local nurses you will be exposed to many conditions and diseases you would not normally see at home.

If there is an area of nursing you would like to specialize in we should be able to arrange it. Please let us know what your preferences are when you apply. Volunteer Society Nepal will help match you to a placement that will best suit you.

The local nurses in Nepal will mostly deal with the direct treatment of the patients. As an intern, you will shadow the nurses and observe their work. You will find that things are done much differently than you are used to. For instance, much of the basic care for patients is usually handled by the patients’ families.

You may have the chance to spend time on community outreach projects organized by the hospital where you are working. These are usually done on a monthly or bi-monthly basis, except during the rainy season from June to September. The outreach projects offer free health checks and distribute basic medication to suburban or remote communities. Nursing Interns may have the opportunity to visit local schools to lead to health and hygiene classes.
