When it comes to hiring for your plasma center you don’t want just any candidate. You want someone who is knowledgeable, helpful and responsible. You want the total package. But how do you find your perfect candidate? To answer that question, we asked our recruiters who work with the most successful plasma centers in the nation. Below is a summary of the top qualities that they look for when recruiting a Medical Director, Nurse Practitioner, Registered Nurse, or Licensed Practical Nurses:

Cares and communicates

Excellent interpersonal skills and communication skills are always at the top of the list of things wanted in a candidate. Look for a physician that listens to patients, is invested in their health, and knows how to communicate about their care. Other than communication with patients, you want a physician who can communicate with your other staff as well. Look for someone who is respectful of their peers and faculty and want to be a part of a team.

Adaptability and flexibility

Healthcare is fast-paced and ever-changing. You’ll want a physician who can adapt to new systems, patient volumes, and anything else that might come up. They need to be flexible in their approach and embrace change. Along with this comes being flexible with working hours and responsibilities. You want someone who is positive amidst change.

Time management and multitasking

Plasmapheresis roles have a lot of competing priorities to manage. Plasma medical staff need to have the ability to shift focus and prioritize appropriately. Along with this comes organizational skills so that no tasks are left incomplete.

Self-reliant and leadership

You want to hire professionals who will be there to do their job every day, not someone who will waste your time or need their handheld. Look for someone who can motivate themselves and others to figure out what needs to do done and then do it. Although the candidate may not be in a leadership role, look for candidates who have the confidence to lead in other ways.

There is a lot at stake when hiring for your plasma center. Your company relies on its brand and reputation, and anyone associated with it, including your medical staff, can affect it. Look for candidates with the traits and qualities that your center needs most, such as a caring demeanor, excellent communication skills, adaptability, and excellent time management and leadership skills.
