Very productive workplace with some travelling around the province.
Staff Nurse / Nurse Consultant (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 14 February 2017
A typical day at work would be to screen potential blood donors, initiate blood donation for whole blood, platelets or plasma. Working as a nurse consultant to Donor Care Associates as well as performing cursory physical examinations to potential donors was also included, as required. Traveling around the province with the blood care team was a very enjoyable part of my job.
I learned quite a lot at CBS, beginning with phlebotomy, and providing IV access for the purpose of blood/blood product collection and up to data processing.
Working with so many potential donors, learning new skills, as well as traveling were the best parts of my job.
Travel, meeting new people
people waiting long periods of time to donate
