I am new in this site. I am a nursing student and is planning to do my volunteer work in January 2012 for the reasons of fulfillment of my community hours as well as because I would like to get myself familiar with the environment and hopefully the hospital will take me after I graduate. Since this is my time applying and doing volunteer work, I would like to get some suggestions/recommendations in terms of how others search for their volunteer work (well, there are too many hospitals out there and I am not sure what criteria I should consider when applying for a volunteer work. I meant I really want to learn, not being a free labor). Greatly appreciated if anyone can share their experience or giving me some suggestions/recommendations in terms of my concern.
