Hello, I’m currently in the process of applying and I was wondering if I could considering nursing home volunteering as a non-clinical experience? My volunteering mainly involves leading activities with the residents and engaging in conversations. I did not follow any of the doctors or nurses. I’m asking since I already have clinical volunteering experience but no other significant non-clinical volunteering. I would greatly appreciate any feedback on this.

You are interacting with "residents," not patients. It is not a clinical experience for AMCAS purposes. You do not describe a role that has anything to do with the medical issues of the folks with whom you interact.
