I'm looking for some feedback on the quality of my direct patient-care hours. I work as a phlebotomist/medical screener at a blood donation center. I check-in donors, take their vitals (temp, bp, pulse), do dermal punctures, and set them up at the plasmapheresis machine and monitor their well-being during the donation.
I am worried that this kind of patient care ranks pretty low because I am not in a hospital setting and donors have to be inherently healthy for the procedure.
Do you guys think this is good enough to apply next year or should I look for a different job?
I will have plenty of volunteer hours in hospitals, shadowing, medical mission and a good GPA (3.8).
