So I received an email saying my application was not going to progress because I did not meet the minimum prerequisites. I knew that I did meet the prerequisites however so I inquired. I was told that I was missing anatomy and physiology. I took anatomy and physiology in 2013 as PSIO 201/202 (a two-course anatomy and physiology series). I am currently RETAKING the series to receive a better grade. Not sure why this threw them off. Has anyone had any similar experiences to this?

Edit: Oops, I thought you wrote 2012.

I'd email the course syllabus.

I'd email the course syllabus.

I sent Naisha my transcript for now. I'm hoping it was just an error from glancing over my application. Will definitely follow up with the syllabus if I am told that the transcript is not sufficient.

I just realized that TUC PA program wrote on their admissions page the following:

 

**For the 2017-18 application cycle, CASPA has mandated that you report CNA and MA hours under "Healthcare Experience".  The TUC PA program, however, will count these hours towards our minimum required 500 "Patient Care" hours.

 
This is the first time I am hearing about this and cant seem to find any other sources of this information. I listed my CNA hours under Patient care because every other school I've applied to considers it to be patient care. Additionally, I'm a CNA in a cardiac unit at a hospital, and my job title is actually "Patient Care Assistant (PCA)" We are like PCTs minus the phlebotomy. 
 
Any other CNAs list their hours under just health care experience?

I didn't even notice this when applying. I listed my MA experience as PCE, since it is indeed patient care experience... weird.

Congratulations to those who were invited to fill out the supplemental! One step closer! When did you all submit your CASPA app?

I submitted in mid May and received the supplemental invite on 6/23. Hope that helps.

I believe you should be fine. I think TU may have made an error because this CASPA cycle CNA is included in PCH depending on your roles. I screenshot this straight from the CASPA website.

Hmmm... I was caspa verified 5/30. Didn't get the supplemental yet. I'm wondering if they're sending it out to the MOST qualified applicants first. I applied last year and got the supplemental app and my application has only improved significantly but it seems they've skipped me. 

Anyone who got the supplemental app willing to post or DM me their stats?

Id appreciate it! 

Thank you :-)
