  1. Hello everyone, A quick question... I just came across this program at RRCC, and I was wondering about the 2000 hours of paid healthcare requirement. I have worked as a civilian dental assistant/dental front office for the past 7 years. For 7 years before that I was an Active Duty Air Force health services management technician (medical administration. I just wated to know if the program will count my years of dental assisting paid healthcare hours? BTW - I got my bachelors degree in biology from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2005. If anyone has any insight it would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks, Jermaine
  2. Hi All, I was just wondering what sort of health care experience would qualify for "direct patient contact"? I really don't want to take more classes, spend more money, etc. Is there something out there that can qualify as HCE without going through all the classes and paying more money? Thank you.
  3. Yo. Right now i'm a junior at a small christian school in Illinois, Olivet Nazarene University, which has a pretty well known bio program. I've got a 3.5 GPA and it is steadily rising as I have been getting all A's this semester and from here on out after I had a recent change of motivation, which should put me at a 3.75ish by the time i graduate. I will be getting a B.A. in Biology and double minoring in chemistry and sociology. I've taken all the prerequisites, medical terminology, biochemistry, cadaver lab, and will take developmental and nutrition. I will be going on a medical missions trip to Papau New Guinea for 3-4 weeks in May, so I'm hoping that will give me a really good edge on the competition. I should be able to graduate by December 2013, spend the spring of 2014 getting certified for EMT or paramedic, and then spend a year and a half working as an EMT or a paramedic before going to school. I will be shadowing during school. Assuming i do well on the GRE, what are my chances for getting in if everything goes peachy? Also....... Affirmative action. I'm a white male. Someone please shed some light on me and tell me I'm wrong in thinking that being a white male will set me back in the competition. 'Preciate any thoughts, comments, criticisms (keep it constructive please), and anything else you deem necessary to tell me about.

  5. Hi all - I'm currently a dietitian at a nursing home - does anyone know if that will count as health care experience when applying? Have lots of direct patient contact, so hoping it will. I know I can call up and ask each program, just seeing if anyone has any information. Thanks! Best of luck to all :) Ali
  6. I have shadowed 5 different providers, but have observed basically the same duties with each. Each shadow was only 3-4 hours. Should I create a new listing for each provider, or combine them all together, listing their names within that section?
