1. China Nightingale Volunteer Nursing Service Corps was approved and named by The Red Cross Society of China and established in Beijing in July 2007.
It is a volunteer service organization composed of Nightingale Medallists, nursing professionals, nursing college students and caring people from all walks of life. It is the only nursing professional volunteer organization in China.
Its aim is to follow the seven basic principles of the International Red Cross movement, carry forward the Red Cross spirit and Nightingale spirit, and actively carry out voluntary nursing services.
The Nightingale Volunteer Nursing Service team of Shanxi Province was established in May 2018. At present, there are 80 teams and nearly 10,000 volunteers in 11 hospitals and nursing colleges divided into districts and cities in Shanxi Province.
It has carried out health science education, first aid skill training, home guidance for chronic diseases, professional nursing services for the people in need, medical assistance, blood donation and other voluntary services.
Our footprints are all over the communities, enterprises, schools, nursing homes and poor mountainous areas. In particular, we have sustained and in-depth household tracking services, which enable patients in need of assistance to receive effective treatment and assistance.
2. Functional motivation of nursing volunteers highlights values expression functional motivation and self-enhancement functional motivation.
As can be seen from Table 2, the overall score of the functional motivation of the nursing volunteers is (157.12 ± 29.92), which is a medium level. In the ranking, the two scales with the highest score of the voluntary functional motivation are values expression functional motivation and self-enhancement functional motivation.
This indicates that nurses have a strong desire to express their values through volunteer activities.
Volunteer service is the embodiment of the connotation of socialist core values, one of China's volunteer association, points out that volunteer service activities adhere to the "khalid doing good" concept, to promote the voluntary spirit as the core, to serve others, serve the society and the realization of personal value organic combination, promote volunteers by volunteering to edify sentiment, khalid cultivate one's morality, and meet the demand of up to the spirit of good .
Nursing volunteers should be guided to vigorously promote the spirit of dedication, willing to put the needs of the motherland, society and others in the first place, and make positive contributions to improving the social environment and the lives of others by dedicating love, time and knowledge and energy .
Organizations at all levels can make use of multiple platforms to display volunteer service projects and contents, so as to realize volunteers' sense of value and self-enhancement.
3. The professional identity of nurses is at a medium level.
As can be seen from Table 3, the total score of professional identity of nurses in Shanxi Nightingale Volunteer Service team is (110.31 ± 18.71), which is at a medium level.
This indicates that the professional identity of nurses in the volunteer service team is at a normal level.
Professional identity refers to a clear understanding and confirmation of one's career goals, abilities, personal interests and personal values .Xu Min et al.  found that the overall professional identity of nursing interns was low, especially the undergraduate nursing interns' overall professional identity was lower.
However, if the hospital does not pay much attention to the education and guidance of nursing professional identity after taking office, the result of professional identity decline will appear.
Studies  show that volunteers can re-recognize the social value of nursing profession through the carrier of voluntary nursing service, which can stimulate the enthusiasm of nursing profession, strengthen the confidence of nursing profession, and find the way to realize self-value.
Therefore, nursing professional identity is closely related to voluntary nursing service, and hospitals should increase the channels for nurses to participate in voluntary service through various ways, so as to improve professional identity.
4. Functional motivation of nursing volunteers is correlated with professional identity.
It can be seen from Table 4 that occupational cognitive evaluation, occupational social skills, occupational frustration coping, and occupational self-reflection are positively correlated with the total score of functional motivation of nursing volunteers (P < 0.05).
Show care to engage in volunteer service under the influence of various, social identity of nursing profession, the use of nursing skills, and meet with nursing career setbacks, nurse volunteer service can increase the career identity, because engaged in volunteer service is social praise and praise, and confidence and motivation to pursue this career.
Among the dimensions of career identity, career self-reflection was positively correlated with the functional motivation of value expression, self-protection and career (P < 0.05).
Career frustration coping was positively correlated with functional motivation of value expression and career motivation, and occupational social support was positively correlated with learning and understanding motivation (P < 0.05).
Occupational cognitive evaluation was positively correlated with the functional motivation of value expression, self-enhancement, learning and understanding, career, social interaction and self-protection (P < 0.05).Among them, occupational cognitive evaluation, occupational self-reflection and volunteer functional motivation were significantly correlated (R value was 0.044, 0.042 respectively).
These results show that volunteering is a process of serving others and improving yourself.
In the process of helping others, I have increased my professional identity and gained a profound understanding of the connotation of nursing profession.Just like the coVID-19 outbreak in 2020, when everyone praised caregivers for being retrograde angels, nurses began to re-recognize the meaning of nursing and reflect on the real value of nursing.
Therefore, only by improving oneself can we serve others with higher quality, forming a cyclic process of continuous improvement.
To sum up, the statistical results indicate that the functional motivation and professional identity of nursing volunteers in Shanxi are at the national average level.There is still a long way to go to establish a perfect nursing volunteer service system.Nursing volunteer service is a service project to improve nursing professional quality and enhance nurses' professional identity.Volunteer service motivation and nursing professional identity are two aspects of mutual integration and mutual promotion.
It is suggested that all levels of hospitals and nursing colleges should strengthen nursing vocational education, set up voluntary courses or service projects, and actively guide nursing staff to participate in voluntary nursing services, so as to reflect the value of nursing profession and enhance the sense of honor of nursing profession.
How to use professional skills to provide voluntary nursing services for the public, how to use the established voluntary nursing service system to play the initiative of nursing staff, we need to think about a long-term topic.
