Get Involved Any Way You Can
Welcome to day 9 of the #WeAreinThisTogether Student Nurse Wellness challenge.
Many student nurses are facing reduced clinical hours due to COVID-19. But remote learning and online simulations aren’t quite the same as hands-on training.
Do some research to see if your local hospitals or nursing homes are accepting volunteer or paid help from nursing students in roles like:
- Nurse technician
- Nursing assistant
- Occupational therapy aide
While these positions may not satisfy your end goal of becoming a registered nurse, they get you involved in the health care field, add to your resume, and allow you to make an impact on the frontlines of COVID-19. Use these opportunities as learning experiences and a way to expand your health care knowledge in a more hands-on way.
Share how you will get involved or post volunteer opportunities you learn about here or reply to us on Twitter, in our private Facebook group or Instagram. Remember to tag us with #healthynurse!
If you enjoyed today’s tip, use the social media links on the left side of your page to share it with a nurse and invite them to join Healthy Nurse, Healthy Nation!
Missed day 8? Catch up here. Join us on day 10.
