What are some organizations or programs you can volunteer to help provide health assistance?

I am going to enter college to become a nurse, but once I get there I also want to be a part of the Doctors Without Border to help others make sure they have a healthy life because money shouldn't be an obstacle. #medical #nursing #medicine #healthcare #doctor

Your local hospital will have volunteering opportunities - especially in summer for high schoolers. This is a good way to figure out if nursing is right for you.

There are many free health clinics that serve as non-profit organizations dedicated to serving unfunded individuals with medical needs. In Dallas, we had a clinic called the Monday Clinic. In Amarillo, the clinic is called Heal the City. These organizations are always happy to have volunteers.

Often there are churches or non profit places that offer free/nominal charge clinics to those in need. I know in our county here there are several. Maybe just do a google search for something like this with key words 'volunteer student nurse'. As a RN I can assure you it is a rewarding profession to be in. Best of luck to you!

I recommend checking out local hospitals for volunteer opportunities. You can also reach out to local nursing homes as they are always looking for people to read to the residents or help bring water to their rooms. People forget about nursing homes being a medical location but there are some great opportunities for growth and development. You may be able to find summer programs for patient assistants at nursing homes. Just check out their online portals for available opportunities.

Kerrie’s Answer

I would start in your local area and research the websites of local hospitals, nursing homes, and children's homes. These organizations often have volunteer opportunities and programs. I would also look into other organizations such as the Red Cross, Salvation Army, Meals on Wheels, and you can google "Volunteer Opportunities" which usually gives the opportunity to pair you with different organizations in your local area. Sometimes even local homeless shelters offer to pair with health care professionals if there is anyone heading up free clinics.
