Student doing Volunteer work?

  1. 0

    I am new to the board. My name is Jessica. I am going to TVI for nursing. I will be able to Petition next May. I was wondering if any of you ever did volunteer work while in school. I don't have any experience. I am only a student right now of my pre-requisites. But I would love to be able to do some kind of volunteer work so that I can get some experience and see what it is really like to be in that enviornment. If there is such thing can you guide as to how I would do it. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and help me.

    I am sure that they would love to have you. You can contact the Volunteer Dept. directly at which ever hospital that you are intersted in.

    Good luck!.....

    Go for it. I volunteered at UNMH for the last three smemesters of my program. It was very valuable to me, and taught me a great deal.

    Another option availible to you , are nurse externships over your breaks. You should contact the human resources department to discuss those with whichever institution you decide to pursue. I ended up with my first position as a direct result of my externship in a CCU.

    Good luck.
