Shadowing RN in CA for USD MEPN??

  1. 0 Hello!
    I'm applying to the USD MEPN this fall, but I've been having a lot of trouble finding a RN to shadow in Orange County, CA for 100 hours to meet the requirements for the program. Does anyone have any suggestions about how I can go about finding a RN to shadow? Thank you!

    I completely understand where you are coming from. One lengthy way around the situation is to review staff pages of hospitals or email out letters of interest to volunteer to a variety of healthcare facilities. One way that I was able to get a unique volunteering position was I researched low income/free health clinics in the area and called every single one of them. Quite a few were excited for someone to volunteer and I was able to shadow the NP and MD a lot of the time. Of course there is clerical work you do as is part of the whole volunteering process. It's difficult in the So Cal region (I'm in the area) because the market is so saturated and faciltiies are bursting at the seams for volunteers. Let me know how things go!
