Pros: convenient location, opportunity to shadow those in the medical field
Cons: very little training so often felt unhelpful
Typically at Shands, I would volunteer on the pediatric floor for 3 hour shifts. I did not work with anyone besides the nurses that gave me a patient to spend time with. I really enjoyed holding the babies and talking with the kids at Shands. I found the hardest part of the job to be dealing with my lack of opportunities to help.
