A first of its kind program in Puerto Rico that rotates U.S. Nurse Volunteer groups, year round, to impact communities across the Island. We accept students and professionals for up to 7 days at a time to join us in serving the beautiful people of Puerto Rico.
Puerto Rico has taken great precautions which has contributed to the minimal impact the pandemic has had on the island. You can learn about current restrictions by visiting this website: https://www.discoverpuertorico.com/info/travel-guidelines
