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.
- Aug 16, '12 by LindseyRN86I volunteer in my local clinic!! It's great for networking and showing that you are passionate about nursing. Good luck!
- Aug 17, '12 by KateRN1I 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.
