Volunteer Opportunities

The Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas supports the community by educating the healthcare professionals of tomorrow. In return, we ask support from our community in the form of volunteers. Donating some of your time, even just a few hours a week, can make a positive impact on the future of healthcare in Nevada and across the nation.

Working closely with the Clinical Skills Coordinator, Simulation Technicians, Academic Faculty, and other Staff members, the volunteer will set up and breakdown clinical skills based labs, including those involving mid-/lo-/no-fidelity manikins, task trainers, and other training equipment. Equipment maintenance will be done on a regular basis. The volunteer will also assist in the set up and breakdown of equipment and supplies in simulation labs. This position may also be tasked to assist in simulation scenarios, including voice acting and confederate role playing. Other duties such as assisting in administration, inventory, and IT support may be assigned depending on individual skill sets. The volunteer must be able to work within tight time restraints and with little to no direction at times. The candidate must be able to work independently and be able to contribute to a small staff by providing input at regular staff meetings and assist in areas that may be unfamiliar. Finally, clear, professional communication in all forms is required.

A background in nursing and/or medicine is recommended, but not required.

Hands on training, parking permits, staff ID badge, computer/internet access, and a shared work space will be provided.

Shifts: flexible; minimum of one 3-4 hour shift per week is requested and one 3-4 hour shift per month is required; supervised Saturday shifts may be available. Due to the amount of necessary training, a 3 month commitment is required.
