Applications for the junior volunteer program soon will be available at Blount Memorial Hospital.
Junior volunteer applications will be available in the hospital’s volunteer services office beginning Monday, March 14. Juniors between the ages of 14 and 17 years old are encouraged to apply. Deadline for returning applications is Friday, April 1. Interviews will be in May, and orientation will be in June.
The primary duty of junior volunteers is to observe and learn, but there are some basic jobs they can assist with including making informational packets, learning about customer service and answering phones. Those interested in nursing care do actually get to work with a nurse, usually a CNA (certified nursing assistant) or an LPN (licensed practical nurse).
