    They made us do volunteer work. Now, don't get me wrong, volunteer work is awesome, but when you work FT and have a child to support, I did not have time for it.

    Volunteer work is required where I work. You can not get fired for not volunteering but it does affect your pay raises. So, I can see where that might fit in. I don't agree with it, I just can see where it could fit into employment.

    One more thing...how is it volunteer when you are mandated to do it?

    Finally some new subject matter! But nursing is about community, maybe you couldmget a volunteer to help w/ur child while you do the awsome thing.

    yeah, we have to strip down also. I know alot of people are uncomfortable, but i've learned that im comfortable with my body so i really don't care. But, we use models for the breasts and private areas. But, i just thought all schools did this, but now im seeing thats not the case. I guess my school just cheap
