I have been a nurse (RN, BSN) for about 10 months now. I'm currently working in critical care/step-down and I'm interested in grad school sooner than later. My top interests include FNP, NP-adult care, ACNP, and school nursing. I worked in a totally nurse-managed clinic that served mostly hispanic patients who knew no English. I LOVED IT, best experience within nursing so far. I moved to another state and I would love to job shadow, work, or volunteer with nurse practitioners, acute care nurse practitioners, and school nurses to try to get a better grasp of normal work activities before I invest a bunch of money in grad school.
Would it be inappropriate to contact offices/schools
in search of an opportunity to work/volunteer there? It seems like if college clinicals can do it that I could, but I'm not sure?
