    Speak with a nursing supervisor where you volunteer, or the volunteer coordinator, or your course instructor to see if any of these people can make a recommendation about someone who may be willing to help. I can't imagine a situation where every nurse has refused to speak with you.

    Having a stranger who may or may not be a nurse answer the questions for you on the internet is not the course assignment, I'm quite sure.

    We can't answer some of those questions even if we wanted to.

    Yes! Believe it or not, they have refused. The nurses are extremely mean and they don't even answer when I say Hi so I think that's how they are.
    Thank you anyways!

    Maybe they just don't have the time to answer all these questions. There are a lot and most of them would require a lot of work. Reviewing your experience, your skills, your resume? Not something I'd be comfortable doing. And then using my name to get in contact with other people? Again, not something I would be willing to do.
    Did you write the questions yourself or were they supplied to you?

    It's ok. I understand that they have a lot of work, but even if it wasn't an interview the nurses just do not want to talk. I don't know why though? But I found someone at my work place,
    Thank you
