JCMC volunteer application process FAQs

Once we receive your application, we will reach out to invite you to the next available Volunteer Orientation. There, you will have the opportunity to learn more and see if volunteering at JCMC is right for you. Only interested parties who have submitted an application will be invited to the Orientation.

Paperwork for the additional steps of the application process will be distributed at the orientation.

Frequently Asked Questions

GENERAL QUESTIONS

I am a Doctor, Nurse, or other medical professional from another country. I would like to practice my skills as a volunteer. Is this possible?
No volunteer at the Jersey City Medical Center or its affiliates may practice any type of medical skill with our patients, regardless of certification.

I am a licensed medical professional wishing to practice my skills as a volunteer. Is this possible?
No volunteer at the Jersey City Medical Center or its affiliates may practice any type of medical skill with our patients, regardless of certification.

If I volunteer will I get a job at the hospital?
Volunteers are welcome to apply for jobs listed on the Human Resources website. Volunteering at the hospital does not guarantee employment.

I would like to volunteer only with boarder babies (babies born with substance addictions). Is this possible?
Thankfully, we do not see these very often. As such, there are no volunteer opportunities or department that strictly deals with boarder babies.

Do you have baby cuddlers/ Hug-a-Baby program?
As JCMC has adopted national best practices to promote bonding and breastfeeding, newborns are now kept with their mothers as much as possible. Volunteers in this unit now serve a greater variety of functions, including making welcoming kits for new moms, making up informational packets, folding laundry, as well as sometimes cuddling infants. Please follow the regular volunteer application process to apply. Minimum age for this program is 16.
