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.

I enjoyed reading your post, I thought it was neat knowing you volenteered at a hospital. I never knew that about you! And your right volunteer work does look good on appilcations. The way you explained it made me feel like I should get out and go volunteer at a hospital. I think that you probably did learn numerous things about that career that will later down the road help you out!

I liked reading your post, it's neat that you volunteer at a hospital. I've always thought about volenteering but I was never sure it was for me. It's so cool that you enjoy doing that and helping people. It all will deffently help you when you graduate and also look good. I have thought about nursing as a major but still am not sure about it all. But its cool that you know exactly what you want to do and that you know you'll love it.

Well I'm glad someone doenst mind volunteering at hospitals. I dont think I could deal with seeing people in pain or getting surgeries. I would probably pass out!!! It's interesting to hear about the things you learned from this experience.

Some very nice prose, Nadine, although i would suggest your find places for paragraph breaks in the future. 5/5
