I've seen many people on this site recommending to shadow a nurse for a day. I'd love to do this, but I'm not sure how to go about doing it. Do I contact the volunteer hotline at the hospitals in my area? Shadowing a nurse isn't exactly volunteer work though is it?
If you are already a nurse, have you ever had anyone "shadow" you? The last thing I want to be is a pain in the rear for anyone, but I also want to see firsthand what it's all about. Not to mention I think it would look good on my admissions paperwork.
I'd appreciate any information on this that you can give me.
