Is it better to work in a Hospital or volunteer in a Hospital to get into Medical School?

I volunteer in a local hospital but i tried to get a job in a hospital. But unfortunately no hospital is hiring me. They say that there is no positions open at the hospital. So now i work in a day care school as an assistant teacher. I am a sophomore in college doing pre-med.

You will need to have some work experience in order to work in a hospital. Couldnt you enroll into a nursing school as it could be more beneficial. Take a look at this website http://www.thenursingschool.com/ Good luck : )

You should see if you can become a research assistant for any professors for your school. It is a pretty common thing for undergraduates to do. See if they have a free EMT program (like they train you and you work certain amount of events for them). I would also listen to the other advice as well.
