I'm considering doing volunteer work at a hospital or either at a nursing home. I don't know how many hours volunteers are supposed to put in, but my guess is perhaps once a week. I already work full-time at a hospital and I'll continue to do so while going to nursing school
full-time this fall. I want to know if anyone has done any volunteering while in school, how many hours you volunteered, and has it been helpful for applying for externships and jobs. I keep hearing that nursing school will consume my life, so should I only volunteer during the summer and breaks, or should I go to the volunteer interview and decide what to do after that? Thanks!
