    I do:
    Red Cross (disaster action team and disaster health services)
    Local marathon medical tent
    Local mental health social club
    Local school health screenings (scoliosis, head lice, vision)

    I think that's it.

    I volunteer in my local clinic!! It's great for networking and showing that you are passionate about nursing. Good luck!

    I volunteer at a free clinic at the mosque that serves indigent and uninsured people. I adore it and really feel like I've made a difference. I don't think it's helped me find a job, but it has helped me to keep my skills up and network while unemployed, plus helped keep my self-esteem up and keep me out of full-on depression. I've always wanted to give back to my community. I wish I could do more but finances are not such that I can donate anything other than my time and talents.

    volunteer at local clinic that runs by majority of volunteers. The clinic doesn't turn anyone away, however it isn't acute care typically, new pts are scheduled a month out
