by Work the World

Work the World students could be in with a chance to win some serious cash towards their nursing placements.

The Cavell Nurses Trust are offering £2000 for students to "submit a project or model of nursing you wish to explore,either as a small research project or a review of UK practice against care in another country".

This ties in perfectly with our nursing electives in Ghana. We work with the largest government run health care institution in the Western Region, offering big, busy wards with excellent supervisors. Our strong relationships with key nursing staff mean that students will immediately be involved with the day to day routines of a Ghanaian ward - perfect for a comparative study.

Ghana was our very first destination, which means that our placements are top notch. Paediatrics, Neonatal Intensive Care, Obstetrics, Gynaecology, Orthopaedics, Surgery and the Casualty Outpatients Clinic all offer some great nursing electives. You will also enjoy the working closely with doctors and getting involved with the great camaraderie between the nursing teams.

As part of your Work the World placement you also live in the Work the World house - this is a great place to meet other nurses from around the world, adding a new dimension to your research.

For more information about potential Ghana placements, please get in touch. Although you will be responsible for creating the research proposal and for the work involved, we are happy to liaise with the Ghanaian team on your behalf and facilitate your research project for you.
