VCNP is excited to share volunteer opportunities available around the state. In an effort share the impact that NPs have our health care with our neighbors, we encourage that you participate in and host volunteer events. If you know of a community opportunity, please share with staff.

The Virginia Council of Nurse Practitioners is proud to partner with the Virginia Association of Free & Charitable Clinics to link Virginia’s NPs with volunteer opportunities to practice medicine and provide care for those who need it most.
Volunteers are the life blood of Virginia’s free and charitable clinics – indeed they could not provide the vulnerable communities across the Commonwealth with high-quality care without the incredible support of medical and non-medical volunteers. However, due to the pandemic and other factors, clinics have seen a decrease in volunteerism, especially in licensed healthcare providers.
Realizing the critical role volunteers play in service delivery and with the rising need for free clinic services, the Virginia Association of Free & Charitable Clinics, which represents 65 clinics across the state, launched a Volunteer Opportunity Board & Volunteer Directory. This is a centralized, easy-to-use, web-based tool that quickly and conveniently connects interested healthcare volunteers with current volunteer needs in Virginia’s free clinics. By visiting this website, interested medical volunteers can review current needs as well as register to add their name to the directory of interested volunteers for free clinics to contact once an opportunity becomes available.
