Taking a Year off before accelerated nursing program, what to do?
Feb 3, '13
I'm taking a year off before applying to accelerated nursing programs and was wondering if anyone knows of any volunteer opportunities that I could do in my free time while I finish my prerequisite courses.

Try your local hospitals first. A lot of them have specialized pre-med/nursing volunteer programs. Also, try to volunteer for a hospice if you can, maternity care coalition, Planned Parenthood, etc.
