Default nurses

Does anyone know of a cruise line that offers free room and board to a nurse if they agree to work in the cruise medical clinic during the cruise for no compensation??

Nope, don't know of any. All the Nurses and Dr's I have talked to have signed a contract with the line and are considered crew and wear a uniform.

24 cruises and counting!

The very first cruise i went on in 02 (Canival) had a place asking if you were a nurse or a doctor. No other occupations were mentioned. I am a nurse too and often wondered why they asked that. I have been on two CCL & one RCCL since and not been asked that again??

We did see and intresting situation. We has a sea emergency with a crew member having and acute appendicitis and they did an air lift off the boat into a rescue helicoptor.

While on the Oosterdam recently, one of our table mates, an MD, had to assist with an elderly gentleman who collapsed in the gym. He probably saved the mans life, and was offered nothing in return, except a kind word. Not even dinner with the Captain!!
