You will get lots of experience in a very busy needy hospital. Not for the weak at heart. You will make a big difference in lives there but it wont be easy.We are staying with a local pastor in the capitol in the heart of down town. There is lots to do in walking distance from  bed and breakfast we will be staying at. (Museums, restaurants,parks etc.) A great place  to relax after each shift.
