- Nursing Instructor Nursing instructors are needed around the country as more nations struggle to fill their need for nursing professionals. A career as an instructor can be highly rewarding.
- Live In Care Assistants Just as in this country, the elderly and homebound across the world require help. Live in care assistants are in high demand.
- Registered Nurse A RN is still one of the most important positions that you can secure, and RNs are needed all around the world due to a steadily growing demand for nursing professionals.

- You may not end up in a pristine hospital or doctor’s office. Depending on where you are assigned, you could find yourself in remote clinics or even in very primitive settings. You’ll be doing good and helping others, but it’s often a far cry from Western medicine settings. This is especially true when you’re in third world countries.
- It’s not always true, but there are chances that, depending on your employer, you find yourself assigned to a war-zone or other dangerous area. Again, it’s not always true but in some cases you should prepare yourself for an adventure. Usually you’ll know how likely this is.
- In order to thrive as an overseas nurse, you’ll have to have additional skills. Speaking another language, capability of working with equipment and supplies that may not be ideal, and other skills could all be needed.
- Finally, be sure you understand your salary. You may get paid in a different currency since you’ll be in a different country. Tax issues will be different as well. Be sure to gain a solid understanding of just how much you’re earning and how you’ll be able to manage it or else you could find yourself surprised at your financial situation.
