It is my second year in college, and I've been having issues with finding clinical experiences. Since COVID, I lost my hospital volunteer position. I'm currently sitting at only 40 hours for clinical, and I'm feeling somewhat terrified. My family is low-income, so I cannot afford any CNA, EMT, or phlebotomy courses. One of the phlebotomy classes in my town were for $800, which is so demotivating. I also tried contacting a hospice but I received no response back so I'm assuming they aren't accepting volunteers. There were two free clinics a few minutes from my house but they also were unfortunately not accepting volunteers. I also turned in a few scribe applications (ScribeAmerica and ProScribe), but all of the openings were too far from my city. I also feel somewhat unsafe going to a health facility if I were to even have the opportunity to obtain an in-person clinical experience since my mom is a high-risk individual because of her health. I am currently a virtual crisis counselor (just started today!); do you think that crisis volunteering would suffice as a clinical experience especially during COVID? It's pretty much the only clinical experience (?) that is accessible to me at this time, unfortunately. I just honestly feel so stressed out and lost.
