Thanks for the advice so far, I actually have an opportunity that I need insight how to proceed, I have this on a general topic thread but will elaborate here...
I'm looking to start volunteering to get some basic experience and to help with my admission consideration to a program.
My friend just started working at a skilled nursing and rehab unit as a nutritionist and has started a conversation with the head nurse at the facility on my behalf to try and see if I might be able to work as a volunteer.
She (head nurse) asked him (friend) what kind of jobs or the direction I'd take if I was to go there and what would be my agenda... I explain I'm still pre-nursing school
working on my prerequisites to get into BSN program and that this volunteer experience will help with my admission, but also that I would obviously like to create a possible working relationship for the future.
She wants to know what duties I would do day-to-day as a volunteer, but also is intrigued as to what specialties I might go into after I graduate. Because I have essentially zero experience with any working nurse situation I'm not exactly sure what specialties I would be getting into for sure (i have ideas but would expect those to evolve the further i get in my education and subsequent furure working experiences) and know only for sure that I need experience volunteering.
My question is, the head nurse wants to know exactly what I need to do/would be doing in my daily volunteering activities at their office and I'm not quite sure what to tell her, so far I've just said anything nursing or health related. What should I say to this question?
This is a really good opportunity for volunteer experience but also for making a connection at a great facility to possibly work at after I graduate. Any advice as to the specifics of what I should say would be greatly appreciated!
