    Hi there, i have the same situation like you,it's been 3 years since i graduated (international graduate) and just passed NCLEX last may 2011..I also apply to volunteer to some hospital..did you already get your first nursing job?..need help on this..thanks
    Hi, I got a job but not as a nurse. I just did it so I can have the money to get more training and certificate so when I apply as a nurse they would already consider hiring me! lol. And yes, I also applied as a volunteer in a hospital. Congrats on passing NCLEX! best of luck to you!

    Volunteering as a nurse can be very, very hard because of liability concerns. The Red Cross and free clinics might be willing to take you as a volunteer. If you are religious, you might be able to do a domestic mission trip. If your area has a Medical Readiness Corp, healthcare professionals who volunteer for disaster relief, look into that. The one in my area meets every other month, and has a yearly conference. If nothing else, it's an opportunity to network.
