For every career it is nice to have some kinda of volunteer work. Having volunteer work looks good on applications for a job or an application into a program. Last year I wanted to start volunteering somewhere I knew that would help me out in the long run with the career choice I wanted. I finally decided I wanted to try volunteering at Licking Memorial Hospital. I was able to start volunteering in the pharmacy. It was the best experience for me. I was able to see how the machines work for ordering medication, I would deliver medication to all the different floors around the hospital so I learned my way around the hospital. I thought hospitals were so confusing until I started finding my way around. I was able to talk to many different nurses and see what it is like to work in a hospital atmosphere.
After volunteering there I decided I would want to work in a hospital atmosphere. I loved going to all the floors and interacting with all the people there. I learned a lot about different medications and how the system works for ordering and receiving the medications. Knowing all this will help me out if I work in a hospital after I receive my degree and will look good on any application. I never thought that I would like volunteering but I loved going there learning new things and being with all the people that I got to know. If I were to work there I would already know a lot of people who work there and I think I would be able to fit right in.
