Nursing Internship Abroad


A nursing internship abroad with Work the World will help shape you into the nurse you have the potential to become.

Our internships for nurses are educational and will help you develop the confidence to take on any challenge the wards present when you get home.

When you return to your nursing studies you’ll be seen as a strong and competent nursing student, earning you recognition from your peers.

And with a nursing student internship on your resume, employers will be fighting to get you in the door.

Yes, you can. Whether you're newly qualified or you’ve been practicing for a few years, you can still go on a once-in-a-lifetime overseas internship.

You’ll get the same level of trip customization as everyone else. You may even get more choices, depending on your level of experience.

You choose the departments you want to get experience in, and we’ll build your perfect placement.


You can choose from a huge range of departments when planning your placement with us: Teaching hospitals,  large government hospitals, and tertiary referral centers.

And when you’re on placement you’ll get invaluable experience with some of the world’s most pressing global health issues. You’ll also see:

  • Different cultural attitudes towards care
  • Patients who can’t afford even the most basic treatment
  • Extremely late presentations and advanced conditions


You also have complete flexibility when it comes to shift patterns. You can undertake day shifts, night shifts, or both.

You’ll live in an exclusive, shared room with one roommate of the same gender for the duration of your trip. 

You’ll live with a mix of fellow healthcare students and graduates. But you’re all together for the same reason. So over the weeks, you’ll meet new people and form bonds, making professional contacts for life.

Are you planning on traveling by yourself? You have nothing to worry about — the vast majority of graduates who visit our programs do just that. And you’ll meet plenty of new people in the Work the World house.

You can also rely on the Work the World in-country team to look out for you while you’re overseas. They work from a base in the house and will be there as and when you need them, both in and out of the hospital.

But you can certainly plan a trip with your friends or colleagues too. Just be mindful that programs have limited spaces. You should try to inquire as early as you can so that you get the greatest possible choice.



Your healthcare internship is the focus of your trip. Wherever you choose, adventure awaits. 

During your free time, the afternoons and weekends will be packed full of experiences like:

  • Relaxing on white-sand beaches and swimming in crystal-clear waters
  • Explore the Ancient city of Athens or Thessaloniki
  • Spending a weekend hopping between paradise islands


Whether you're only in the early stages of considering going overseas for your healthcare internship or you have a few (or many) questions - get in touch using the inquiry form. One of our Placement Consultants will then arrange a quick call with you to find out your aims and objectives at a convenient time.
