    I started volunteering at a nursing home in March but I stopped going since May due to travel issues. It's about a 30-minute bus ride one way and lately I've been really strapped for time. I'm thinking of starting hospital volunteering instead since it's more convenient. I've only done around 10 hours at the nursing home, so I was wondering if it's worth mentioning in my app. Also, it's my only clinical experience so far and I'm already a 3rd year in undergrad.

    Long story short, should I quit volunteering at the nursing home and go for a hospital position, which would be more convenient? or should I try and stay consistent and continue with the nursing home?

    You only have 10 hours. Quit the nursing home, don't mention it on your application, and do something else you ENJOY doing and will add to your awareness of your future career.
