Determining HCE and Direct patient hours, PT Aide

Recommended Posts

Hello!  First year applicant and slowly getting my CASPA application together.

 

I work as a phyical therapy aide.  By the time I apply I will have about 1200-1300 hours HCE.  Now, at least half of each hour I am directly touching patients whether it is measuring, stabilizing, etc..

 

On CASPA would I say I have 1200 HCE hours and 600 of those being Direct patient contact, or would I have to split them 600 and 600 for each?

 

Thank you again!

      Hey, everybody! Fairly new here. I’ve been scrolling through other threads on this site regarding recommended online schools for prerequisite courses. A few of the threads are extremely helpful but several years old, so I wanted to start a more contemporary thread in case online school qualities have changed or there are any new ones. 
      I’m looking to take biochemistry and anatomy online. Ideally a low price would be great, but a self-paced online course is most important to me considering my current career and associated time restrictions. 
      I’ve been looking heavily at UNE for both courses but have heard mixed reviews. Any recommendations or suggestions based on your experiences, for UNE or others?
      Thank you so much!
