If I were to give each of you $100 right now, wouldn’t you be happy? (Attention) Well I can’t do that. This is because even when something seems free, there is always a net financial investment. This is clearly seen through the volunteers of the hospital. Today I will show you the financial impact that a volunteer has on the hospital and patient experience. (General Purpose) We will look at the costs of running a volunteer program, the financial return volunteers provide, and the invaluable impact on the patient experience in a hospital. (Preview)
“Definition of a nurse: To go above and beyond the call of duty. The first to work and the last to leave. The heart and soul of caring. A unique soul who will pass through your life for a minute and impact it for an eternity. An empowered individual whom you may meet only for a 12-hour period, but who will put you and yours above theirs”-Anonymous. For the past year and a half, I have volunteered at Blaire E. Batson Children’s Hospital. It has been an amazing experience! My passion for the medical field and career of nursing has been magnified. I know without a doubt that nursing is what I want to do for the rest of my life. I long for the opportunity to care for my future patients and their families. I want to touch other people’s lives just as I have witnessed nurses do throughout my time volunteering. God has given me a passion for nursing.

Throughout my four years of college, I wanted to learn about myself and the world. I did not want to follow a particular path or be strict with myself.

I am ready to learn and I am ready for a new experience. I want to learn from accomplished individuals and further my knowledge in health for when I decide to go to nursing school.

Volunteering at Texas Health Presbyterian Plano is my way of giving back to the community while developing critical social skills, and gaining important medical field exposure along the way. It’s an opportunity to change a person’s life, including my own.

I did my volunteer work at a local daycare in my hometown, Tahlequah. The site is called Tahlequah Early Learning Academy (TELA) and is a side site to Cherokee Nation Early Childhood Unit. I did not know of this center until I did my volunteer work. I really didn’t even know the building was in use because it use to be the old central for grades 5th and 6th. This building is located a couple of blocks west of Tahlequah High School.
Throughout high school, I volunteered at a reputable childrens therapy facility called Equi-kids. Equi-kids is a nonprofit organization that teaches disabled children how to interact with animals and build core strength on horseback.

Even some of the most severely disabled riders have found comfort alongside the helpful staff and loving animals at the farm.

I want to volunteer at Johns Hopkins because I like to help people. I know that’s the most basic thing ever and usually people don’t even mean it, but I really mean it. When I help people, I am happy. I especially love to help kids. I have a lot of experience in babysitting and teaching children Sunday school at church; I’ve helped at the library with helping kids how to read, etc. Speaking from experience, I know what it feels like to be stuck in the hospital when all your friends are out living their lives.
