Need some valuable advice. I am in the middle of nursing school in the Boston area and I'm thinking about getting more experience as either a PCA or just as a volunteer. I know volunteers can only do certain things in hospital but it may be a good networking opportunity especially if I want to work in a specific unit. However, if I apply for a PCA, I can get better hands on experience and bring home a little extra spending cash. At the same time, I still have to apply for a PCA position and there is no guranttee I will get the job.
Any opinions on which path I should take?
