    Will Volunteering at the American Red Cross count as experience or not? Thanks, Amy:)

    Experience for what? It is good volunteering (long ago I taught CPR classes for them).

    Amy, yes it will count towards clinical experience.

    I've volunteered with the Red Cross for about two years now and it's been great. I highly recommend it. I also volunteered in a large hospital's ER and the Red Cross volunteering was much, much better. I got to see how an ER operates at the hospital, but I wasn't allowed to do anything. With the Red Cross there was tons of hands-on experience (and free CPR, AED and first aid training).
