Global Health Nursing Fellowship

The Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children (FIMRC) is excited to announce it's Global Health Nursing Fellowship (GHNF) at Project Limón, Nicaragua!

GHFN is a program for nursing students, recent graduates, and nursing professionals alike looking for an immersive experience into rural healthcare. Each fellowship is tailored to the participant’s experience, interests, and educational goals. As a Fellow, participants will gain exposure to international healthcare services, continue to improve upon nursing skills and abilities, as well as gain experience in providing culturally sensitive care to children and their families.

In contrast to our shorter programs, GHNF's four-week structure gives you a chance to form lasting relationships, view an underserved population from within and use your skill set in an international setting. We know that nurses offer a unique and important role in patient care, and this program strives to use those exact skills and knowledge in the global community. You also have the opportunity to improve your Spanish through your interactions with locals (but it isn't a requirement for the program).

Our GHNF program is available during the months of June and July at our project site in Limón, Nicaragua. Our program provides not only a valuable experience for resumes or employment applications, but will expand your knowledge and perspectives on international healthcare. We are currently accepting applications on a rolling basis. Once our program reaches capacity, interested individuals will be placed on our waiting list.
