I will be applying to medical school next summer, and need to some community service and experience in the medical field. Does it matter where I volunteer or work. Is a hospital better than a clinic or a nursing home?

All the docs I've talked to have said 'no' when I've asked the same question. Research is another issue, but when it comes to getting a feel for the medical profession I think any of the places you listed would be fine. If you want to get a broad base you may want to consider giving some of your time to multiple institutions.
