Lpn Grad regarding hospital volunteer job opportunities?

Posted

Well I live in Philadelphia and passed my Nclex in March.I have applied to quite a few nursing homes and hospitals,but I've either been told I need a year experience or they don't hire new nurses.Its been a tad frustrating applying for jobs.Someone advised me it would be best to volunteer my services at an hospital.I am aware that volunteer opportunities are not guaranteed to employment.Just quite uncertain what my responsibilities would be and how it would assist me with the LPN aspect of gaining experience.Also what's the best approach to letting them know that my reason is to gain experience relating to nursing. I am also concerned with the altruistic purpose as well.Thank you!
