I have a final assignment in the final semester of my BSN program(God help me I am so sick of this ridiculousness) and I am totally out of ideas. I need to make a power point on nursing volunteer opportunities that are only available to nurses. I thought this would be a good place to ask, maybe some of you have experience volunteering somewhere and can offer me some good suggestions. I need something that I can find lots of info about, something broad yet interesting enough(for my instructor) to get a decent grade. Hopefully it will be over soon I can finally get my ARNP school started and study real medicine lol

I had no intention to hurt anybody`s feelings. I used "real medecine" term for comparison only related to school material, not what you learn at work. No doubt there is plenty of great knowledge that can be learned through working. School on the other hand is a joke. They make you study nursing theories and metaparadigms of nursing, while there are thousands of patients dying from med errors, inadequate knowledge of disease process and lack of nursing assessment skills. Nursing needs more medical education and less BS. More clinical pathophysiology, lab interpretation, pharmacology, and such. Thanks to schools like this doctors think majority of nurses are idiots.
I have never met a physician that thought a majority of nurses are "idiots" Thousands of patients die from med errors that residents and foolish physicians are responsible for as well.
I am very sorry that your school was inferior...mine however was not. I had all the
More clinical pathophysiology, lab interpretation, pharmacology, and such.
you are seeking in my ASN program.
Now if you are referring to the multitude of RN-BSN programs out there...I agree that they are nothing but busy work and papers.
I am increasingly frustrated by the disdain that nurses are showing other nurses. When you become an APRN you are still...a RN with a broader scope of practice. But you are nonetheless...a Registered Nurse.
I think entry nursing programs
have been dumbed down on purpose to promote their own agenda and job security.
A doctor who believes most nurses are idiots...I have little respect for.
