Hello Everyone, I want to stay connected with all of my fellow pre-PA students who are applying to York College. I submitted my application recently and it is verified by the CASPA. The only thing I am missing is the GRE.
Hello, my name is Ana and I have a BA from The New School in NYC. After many years in the arts (I am 36 and a mother of 1) I have decided I would like to be a PA or an NP. In the past year I have lost 3 very close family members and took care of all of them at home: 2 with cancer one with Alzheimer's who spent her final days in a nursing home, with me visiting every day and changing the dressings on her unstageable wounds. (long story, nursing home abuse) I am a huge fan of science and medicine. I thought about being a dermatologist in my early 20's but art is what I had been doing since I can remember and I natuarlly just followed that path but now regret it. I have enrolled in BMCC and taking pre-requisites which can be considered for both nursing and PA degrees. My gpa is 3.9 so far but do have a B+ in chem:( My questions are: -am I too old to become a PA? -should I continue my AP 1+ 2 + all other science pre-reqs (and LOTS of them) at BMCC and then apply to PA school? Or should I do AP 1 + 2 in PA school? BMCC is SO affordable! -should I transfer into the PA school BEFORE applying to the PA program? Lastly and most importantly: PA schools require experience and my experience with my loved ones will not count. -Is volunteering considered experience or must I be hired/paid as a medical assistant first, in which case I will have to get a certificate for this as well:( Thank you so, so much for this advice and I am so happy to find this forum All the best, Ana
