My experience as a Nursing student working in Peru

The experience was one of a kind. With my background being in modern medicine I was negligent in realizing the effectiveness and possibilities of Alternative medicines. After just a few short weeks in Peru I begun to realize how valuable the use of plant-based medicine really was and how much one can do with the native plants of the Andean mountains. The opportunity to learn about this way of treating and curing people can really change the way you will begin to think about your own health. That is what has stayed with me long after I returned home. I truly enjoyed the lifestyle I had been able to be a part of and the welcoming people of Urubamba and all its' culture has to offer.
Bonus: My most favorite part about where I had stayed particularly was the mountain almost literally in our backyard. Whether you're looking at it from the town or you just spent the early morning hiking to the top, it is truly a gorgeuos site.)

A Summer internship in Berlin

After a few phone interviews, Nicole presented me with three internship offers in industries that I told her I was passionate about. Nicole landed me the BEST internship, working for a yoga, health and wellness center in Berlin! I met so many incredible people who honestly, changed my life. Nicole and her team were always very responsive (even with the time difference) and made sure I had everything I needed, including health insurance, before I went abroad.

I would highly recommend her services to any student who's feeling overwhelmed with finding that perfect internship. she's the best!

Internship and Summer Courses

It was a life changing experience that I would gladly do again. I made friends, learned about a new culture, traveled and ate fantastic food. Working an internship while taking classes was especially crucial as I feel that it was the best way for me to improve my Spanish speaking abilities while simultaneously understanding a new culture. On top of this, it has prepped me for my future career wise as well! I highly recommend this program to anyone seeking the Spanish experience/ anyone looking to improve upon professional development internationally.

Internship in Peru

Overall, amazing. The amount of time I spent there (6 weeks) was perfect, and allowed me to feel like Urubamba was my home. Quite a humbling experience living in a third world country, and I definitely returned to the States with a newfound appreciation for what I have. Met many amazing people from all over the world. My internship in the hospital was not what I had expected, as I was hoping to get trauma experience. The "hospital" more closely resembled a health clinic, and we as interns were not well-received by staff. On a brighter note, my time spent in the Andean Medicine Clinic was amazing and enlightening. Holistic treatment is not favored in the Western world, and it was quite an eye-opening experience to see, first-hand, that natural, holistic remedies work.

    Thanks for sharing your experience with us! Unfortunately, the hospital wasn't as we had hoped. We will be working on warming up the staff there for future interns thanks to your feedback. :)
    I hope between the good outweighed the bad during your time and that the Andean clinic and other trips and cultural activities made up for the less than friendly staff at the hospital!

The valley, the mushrooms, the people

I think it is really hard to have accurate expectations when signing up for any abroad experience, but my 4 weeks in Peru were unforgettable. You truly can't go wrong in such a beautiful, humble place. My coworkers at the mushroom farm were both welcoming and forgiving of my elementary Spanish, and the family that my boyfriend and I lived with provided a wonderful home. I love the Sacred Valley, everything from gorgeous hikes, to Wednesday night salsa classes. I really hope to return sometime soon and visit the many friends we now have there!
