Like all positions, an application has to be relevant. You need to be applying to something your qualifications or previous experience prove you are capable to do, or are capable to learn. For a Nurse Volunteer position you should highlight these experiences and display your passion for this field. Medicine and care needs dedication, and that's what an employer will want to see.
Your application letter should be short but not too brief. It should explain your interest in volunteering, and why this particular organisation is your choice. You should explain what you offer, in terms of qualifications, and that you are in a financially secure position to be able to volunteer.
Your experience is important to emphasize; things like working with low-literacy children or working as a mediator for family troubles, or work involving diversity in terms of religion, ethnicity and background; these all count towards showing you as a well-rounded person.
Your resume, or Curriculum Vitae, should be well constructed and designed. It should be clear, with your name and contact details at the top of the page. This is nice and bold and will catch the employer's eye. You want this; you want to sell yourself. The instant impression is important, which is why the document must be thorough but not an essay, as well as easy to read and navigate.

At the beginning of your resume you want a summary of yourself; a personal description. This will explain your passion, desire, ability to fit in and work hard and most importantly be reliable. You'll then want a concise but accurate record of both your education and your work history, before concluding with a brief bit about your interests, to demonstrate you're socially capable, and to state your references.
You would be well advised to learn as much as possible about the position you're applying for, and to learn the basics of interview etiquette in case you are successful.
