I am taking the pre-reqs right now to get into nursing school (hopefully Brookhaven Spring or Fall 2012!) and I'm sure that nursing is what I want to do, but I am getting really antsy knowing that I have a while still until I actually start the nursing program
(even longer if I have to wait until next Fall!
) I'd love to shadow a nurse in the DFW area but I'm not really sure how to go about doing this - do I just turn in a volunteer application to the hospital? Can I choose which department I'd prefer to volunteer in? Any info would be helpful, especially if any DFW area nurses know if their hospitals are looking for volunteers in their department (L&D would be top choice, then NICU or peds). Thanks!!
