  •  Intensive Care
  •  Perioperative nurses (or in easy terms is surgery Nurse)
  •  Computer Conversion Nursing (Electronic Health and Medical Records) – in other words IT expert nurse
  •  Labor & delivery and pediatrics

On the other hand, volunteering nurses are nurses who travels to ‘developing countries,’ where healthcare workers and facilities are needed the most, and also countries with high poverty levels.

Therefore these nurses who volunteer their time, skills and expertise to the cause would reduce the impact of insufficient medical care in ‘developing countries’.
