Any Utah Psych Nurses of NP's?

  1. 0
    I was just wondering what the best way is to get my foot in the door for a psych job. I'm planning on entering a DNP psych program Fall 2013 and would like to have some experience before entering the program.

    Does anyone know of any psych facilities that allow volunteers?

    I know Lakeview Hospital allows volunteers, but all they do is answer phones, make copies, etc. Not a ton of experience, really. I don't think they're allowed to interact with the patients much except to say that they'll get staff for them. Why not try to work a couple shifts a month? That will be better experience.

    Thanks for the information! I'll be sure to look into it. I agree that a few shifts would be great to help get my foot in the door.
