ABSTRACT: I recently undertook a voluntary neutering project in Ecuador, South America. This was a life changing experience which changed my outlook on life, and has improved my nursing skills. I trekked through the jungle, canoed through mangroves, made friends and explored a beautiful country. I implore every nurse to do a similar project as a matter of necessity.
