I have seen you on this forum so many times, and you always have a wealth of knowledge.
I have contacted both U of L Hospital, and Kosair and they both are willing to let me volunteer, so I am going through that process now.
I meet with both of them this week, so once I talk to them I will probably get more information on this, but I wanted your opinion.
I am looking to volunteer at the hospial that is going to give me the most patient care experience. I have searched through the forum under "volunteer" and it appears that the most patient care experince that Kosair is going to give me is activities for the children (which I don't mind) but that U of L is going to really let me "get my hands dirty."
BUT, I am hoping that maybe the volunteer experience may eventually lead to a job, and I think Kosair is where I would eventually like to be.
BUT, I read the post from the RN at Norton's who said they are having a lot of issues because of the Anthem/Norton contract, and who knows how long that is going to take to straighten up.
I am just so back and forth between these two hospitals. Granted, if I don't like one I could always go to another, but I am trying to get this right the first time around.
I think U of L because I will probably get the best experience as far as seeing everything, but then I think Kosair because it may lead to a potential job (which U of L could too...but not sure if I want to work there).
So confused, any insight would be SO appreciated!!!
