Can I volunteer at a nursing home and shadow a nurse.

  1. Hi Folks,
    I am thinking about going back to school to be a nurse.
    However, before I spend all the time and effort.
    I would like to make sure it is something I enjoy.
    How do I go about asking to volunteer and watch the nurses.
    I liked the folks at the nursing home that used to take care of my grandfather. How does one approach this situation who do I speak to the Health Care Manager?
    I am friends with one of the nursing assitants should I talk to him

    You could talk to your friend and get the name of the DON (director of nursing.) Then call him/her and explain what you want to do.
    Good luck!
