Job shadowing

  1. Tomorrow night I get to shadow my nurse friend in the Neuro-ICU at our local hospital! I'm so excited!!! I know that I really can't do anything, but it'll be nice to see what my friend does all night

    I know how that feels! I'm excited to go volunteer at my local hospital this fall semester. Hoping I can get in the nursery, but I'm excited either way. Lol.

    Awe I'd love to do the NICU or peds, but I won't have time once the semester starts again good luck to you!

    I did 20 hours of shadowing a hospice nurse, which is what I want to do with my degree. It was an amazing experience. Enjoy.

    How did you set up the shadowing thing? I would love to do it also.

    I was lucky enough to have a friend that works there to get me paperwork, but if you go to the volunteer resources office at your hospital, they will help you! Or you could contact the director of whatever department (peds, ICU, ER) that you're interested in shadowing and they would provide you with papers to sign as well. My friend got the papers from her director, then I had to turn them in & pickup my badge from the volunteer office.

    I set mine up by asking my school if I could do a community service project, then, because it was for school, the hospice house was happy to give me a shadowing opportunity.
