As a nurse working for Médecins Sans Frontières your training and supervisory skills will be utilised to the full. The contexts in which you work may vary from taking part in a mass vaccination for meningitis, managing a maternal-child health program or triaging an influx of displaced people fleeing conflict.
Your expertise will be called upon to support local staff in the upgrading of their skills. On the other hand local nurses and health workers will be ‘old hands’ at managing tropical diseases you may never have worked with before.
Nurses with expertise in paediatrics, tropical diseases, emergency care, operating theatre nursing, immunisation, public health and training are particularly useful in the field.
