I have been blessed with an amazing opportunity to travel to Ecuador for a mission trip and a transcultural nursing experience. We will be going March 4-18th. This trip will provide me with an incredible experience to not only grow as an individual but also grow within my nursing career. While there, we will be working along side local nurses and doctors to provide care at two different hospitals: San Francisco hospital which is a more community based hospital, and Voz Andes hospital. We will get to experience a wide variety of nursing practice from surgey to labor and delivery. We will also participate in local events, community outreach, and spending time with our host families. We will end our trip in the Galapagos Islands for debriefing and relaxation.
I am looking forward to becoming a more culturally competent nurse, and experiencing life in Ecuador with my fellow classmates.
With this trip comes a bit of a cost. I would love for any help and support you will be able to provide me with, be it a prayer, a share or a financial donation.
Any little bit helps. I look forward to sharing with all of you my experiences.
