Before applying to PA school, you must be doing your research and noticed alot of school require “direct patient care” hours.

Direct Patient Care is when you’re actually “doing” something on the patient. It could be taking vitals, reminding patient to take medication, assisting in the OR,  assisting with ADL’s and many more.
