Looking for nursing jobs both abroad and in the UK is easy and can really help the bank balance! With the average salary of a nurse in Australia around £40,000 a year, you could easily earn enough money to fund more travels if you want to visit Down Under!
Many of our gappers have said that taking part in nursing jobs abroad and at home really helped them increase their confidence and developed their professional growth. You could look for a nursing role in developed countries such as Australia, New Zealand and the UK, or give a helping hand to countries struggling with their healthcare systems such as Cambodia, Zambia and Mexico, amongst others. Nursing can educate you on a whole range of techniques to deal with sicknesses not commonly found at home such as leprosy, malaria and HIV. In turn, you might even teach the locals the thing or two or help them with their English language skills by engaging in conversation.
