cdkruse Posted November 21, 2015 Share Posted November 21, 2015 I am a pre-PA student trying to plan ahead for the 2016-2017 application cycle, although I need help deciding which work-related letter of recommendation to use, as I have multiple options. All three of my options are described below, I'd appreciate any advice on making this decision. 1) I am currently employed as a Patient Care Technician at a hospital and could ask my nurse manager, who is my highest direct supervisor and who hired me for the position. The situation is that I have only been in my position for about six months and she has recently switched to a different position in the same department - so we still work together, she's just no longer my direct supervisor. Additionally, I primarily work weekends, as that's what fits easiest around being a full-time student, while she mostly works week days, so we don't work side-by-side frequently. However, she does monitor my work indirectly and has always given me very flattering feedback on my performance reviews. 2) Another option is that I could ask my head charge nurse for a letter of recommendation. Him and I have worked side-by-side more frequently and have bonded with over having similar hobbies. My concern is that a letter of recommendation from someone in a higher position could be more beneficial. 3) Yet another option is that I could ask the head of the nursing department at the nursing home I work at about 2 years ago as a CNA. Her and I always had a good work relationship and she always gave me positive feedback. My concern is that it was a while ago. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
