licenses and certifications

Recommended Posts

Hi! When inputing licenses into CASPA, it asks for the "issue date". I was wondering if I should put the date I first received the certification, or the date that I renewed my certification. I became a CNA in Oct. 2016, however I renewed my license in May of 2017, so technically the new issue date would be May I think.

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

You can either treat it all as one license with initial issue and current expiration, or treat them separately and include the first one issue+expire, and the new one issue+expire. I don't think it really matters. I included some expired licenses in my CASPA just to show I had them in the past.

That’s what I figured. I’m intending to just include it all as one seamless license but wanted to make sure that wasn’t the “wrong thing to do” for any reason. Thanks!! :)

None that I'm aware of. My impression at least was that for clearing the filters, GPA and GRE, the information is very standardized. After that, a real person is going to read your application, so as long as it makes sense to a "reasonable and prudent" person, then it should be fine. I would say include both the original and new one scanned together (preferably side by side on the same page) in the "supporting docs" section.

      Hi Friends,
      I'm trying to develop a bit more privacy than is the default on the PA Board website. In CA, is there a way to put your work address as the one on file, or would you have to get a PO box should you desire to not have your home address listed on a license search?
      Thanks much!

      So I am applying for this cycle and I previously entered my job in experiences as current. after submitting the application I had to quit this job because it was a terrible work environment. However, it is in CASPA as current so idk what to do. I also got a new job but it doesn't start for another week and I was going to submit my apps this weekend so i am not sure how to go about this. Also is it better to apply sooner with less PCE or later with more PCE???

      My CASPA application was recently verified 2 weeks ago. However, I am still completing some applications on CASPA and I was wondering how to go about updating my current HCE experience? I have a full-time job, so I already accumulated about 80 hours since my application was verified. Do I need add new HCE experience (with the same description) that is already listed as "till date"? Also, how do you update current experience (if at all)? Do you write the start time from which you started the job or the start date from which you last updated that type of experience from when the application was verified?
