I am in the huge category of recent grads who cannot find work without that golden "one year of experience". Or more. So I have recently started to look for volunteer work. I have started with the Red Cross, hoping to become a CPR instructor, and also working with a retired RN there for certain cases that require a nursing license due to privacy laws. I enjoy doing this as I like to volunteer anyway
I have also heard that some SNFs and clinics take in volunteer nurses. Is that true? I can't even get to talk to a DON, so I don't know if I can volunteer.
So my husband and I are accepting that it will be at least another year before I can work. We are not rich, but living very simply, and are getting by. I do enjoy volunteering, and have done it in the past. But I would like my volunteering to be targeted to help me in the future too.
So any suggestions would be appreciated.
