As a second year Master of Nursing student, I joined the Medical Reserve Corps because I wanted to play a role in making our community a safe and reliable place. I have an interest in emergency nursing and I enjoy working in an environment that keeps me on my toes. Volunteering is always a good time because you get to meet so many new people from so many different backgrounds and professions.
My MRC volunteer experiences include staffing a first aid tent during the Chainbreaker deployment, which helped raise funds for cancer research here at our university. Along with that, I helped prepare for the Chainbreaker event by calibrating the glucometers that were utilized in the first aid tents.
