    Personally i think you should volunteer in a care home and/or a hospice, it definitely demonstrates that you want to be a nurse and shows you care about older people and those in need. Maybe you should also volunteer at a children's ward in a hospital or something like that?

    A hospice is a good place as it involved people of all ages and all kinds of needs depending on the persons condition. So i think thats the best option?

    An old people's home would be a good start. And also a hospice as the age range and condition/severity varies massively. Maybe even volunteer to work with special needs kids as that gives you a more unique angle also.
