Hospital volunteers are usually unpaid individuals who work in hospitals in order to gain hands-on experience. Most hospital volunteers eventually build a career in the healthcare industry which is why they are trained extensively before they can apply for this position. Their training may include very basic patient care, taking vitals and providing patients with emotional support. They are also expected to perform clerical duties such as maintaining records and handling the hospital’s front desk and telephone exchange.

Resumes for Hospital Volunteer positions can be a bit overwhelming to write. The lack of experience and developed skills can leave candidates somewhat confused at what to write. However, this may not be a problem if you organize the information in your resume in an appropriate manner.
