I'm here to help, and I understand you're looking for ways to gain experience in nursing before diving into a program. There's a variety of paths you can take! You could consider volunteering with the elderly or at a local hospital, or even becoming an EMT to get some ambulance ride-along experience. The American Red Cross is another great option.

If you're interested in more formal training, you might want to think about completing a nursing assistant program to become a CNA or MA. This could open up even more doors for you.

As for internships, I'm not aware of many that don't require some sort of certification or completion of an assistant program. This is because these roles often involve tasks like taking vital signs or conducting urinalysis for routine checks or drug screenings.

When you become a nursing student, you'll get hands-on experience with all these tasks. But remember, the more experience you can get beforehand, the better prepared you'll be!
