Experience/Certification Section


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

If anyone has filled out a CASPA application before, please help answer some questions.

 

The programs that I am applying into this April required a certain number of hours Hands On Patient Care.

 

What does this section look like in CASPA? More specifically, what are the things that needed to be included, for example, contact information of supervisor?

 

I believe I heard from someone that there is a section that you have to enter any valid certification up to date. If my hands on patient care experience was in the past and my license has since expired, do I still enter my certification information? Likewise, what information is needed in this section, for example, the certification identification number?

 

If you have gone through the process, can you tell me how CASPA verify the certification section?

 

Please kindly help.

 

Thank you so much!

Hi,

For this section you are required to include: 

-Type of experience (volunteer, shadowing, HCE, ect)

-Organization information (address, phone number)

-Supervisor information (name, address, phone number, email)

-Date of experience (start/end date, ect and whether its part-time,per diem, full-time)

-Experience details (Name of position, if its compensated or volunteer work, avg. # of hours worked per week, total number of weeks worked and a description of your job)

 

In the case of your certification question, the issue date/date it is valid until is currently optional information but that may change in the next cycle if CASPA changes it. For this section all that is really required is the name of the certificate and the organizational name.Hope this helps you out and you can get a head-start on collecting some of the required information needed.

Some schools ask for certifications. If they do, this is added under the tab for each school individually.

 

There is no way for CASPA to verify your hours and no verification or proof of employment is required (or asked for) by CASPA. This is done on the honors system.

 

As far as licenses are concerned, if I remember correctly there is an option to say when it expires. I think it will let you put in an expired license. I didn't enter any expired ones, so I can't verify that.

      $900 a month for the 12 x 12 bedroom and $950 a month for the 20 x 20 garage converted room. This room has its own studios ac unit and heater. ALL BILLS PAID (utilities and internet)! 
        I will be more than happy to show you the house.    I'm sharing this beautiful, extremely well maintained 1905 sq. ft. picture-perfect house.

      I'm looking to find an interested individual to split a 2 bedroom apartment in either the Newark, Wilmington, or Glasgow area. 

      About myself: I'm a 28 year old male resident of California moving to Delaware for Physician Assistant school at Arcadia University. I currently work at a paint shop since I like home improvement projects, and at night as a medical assistant. I like to read, watch movies, run, hike, swim, and really anything else outdoor related during my non-working hours. 

      I'm a considerate roommate and respect the space of others. I'm well organized, friendly, and focused.

      My move in date would be mid May 2014.

      If you're in a similar situation, looking to cost save and have a solid roommate please let me know! Thanks!

      (As a current Arcadia student, if you can recommend a good apartment complex, I'd appreciate that as well.) 

      Nick
