Clinical Experience & Direct Patient Contact

Recommended Posts

I'm having difficulties getting "direct patient" contact hours. I have tons of volunteer experiences and opportunities, but many schools only count clinical experience hours for hours which you get paid. I recently was hired as a caregiver for a Home Health Aide company. I am also CNA certified, but for this job it was not a requirement. Through this position I assist seniors with personal cares, transfers, ambulation, etc. much of the same things a CNA would do in a nursing home. Also depending on the client I also provide companionship and make meals.


Would you consider this position as clinical "direct patient" experience?
