I'm dead set on becoming a nurse or at least working in the medical field. My decision is based off of my easy access to a college said to have a great nursing program (BCIT), my affinity towards interacting with people, and my desire to make people happy.

Context: I am currently volunteering for multiple local events but none of them have been related to healthcare. I want to find volunteering opportunities in nearby hospitals (and maybe vets?) so that I can have some experience in a healthcare environment, but I'm not sure how to start. When I am old enough I'll apply for hospital internships.

Clubs and Their Significances

I realize employers often look for people that are motivated and committed and check it through their involvements in school. Due to this, I've been wondering on whether I should join clubs or not since I do very little extracurricular activities. Is it necessary or just nice resume padding?...

University or College?

I'm often pressured by my parents to attend a university and I don't really disagree with the idea, but a college nearby offers a nursing program that I think is more suitable for me than the one at the university. The courses at the university are more textbook based courses while the college...

Is professionalism or personality more important in a hospital setting?

Which would be more appropriate for a hospital setting? I realize that it is important to be friendly to patients, but just how friendly can you get before it becomes inappropriate? #professional #hospital #patients #healthcare...

Is hands on experience or textbook knowledge more important?

I plan on becoming a nurse and I realize both are important, however, the universities close to me are renowned for leaning on one of two sides. Either too much textbook knowledge, or too much hands on experience. Which do you think is better? #nursing #medical #nurse #school #career...

Whats my role in volunteering?

I've volunteered multiple times for many organizations, but I don't know what to call the roles that I have been involved in. What can I call the role of simply just helping out and doing odd jobs? #volunteering #volunteer #non-profits...
