Hey everyone So I'm a sophomore in school right now and have volunteered at many different places unrelated to health care. I just started volunteering at a local hospital and honestly i gotta say i feel so useless. There is almost nothing I can do as a volunteer and I dont seem to learn anything out of the "work" either. Is volunteering at a hospital really necessary? because i would much rather get certification as a cna, emt, phlebotomist, etc. and do some real work. If i worked at the hospital but didn't volutneer, would it look bad on my application?
