Earlier this year I attended a PA school virtual fair in which multiple people said you want to be as descriptive as possible in your "experiences" tab on CASPA. I have worked several CNA jobs with different companies, but the job and work I did was basically the same. I'm looking for some advice... should I be redundant so I don't leave anything out in the work I did or should I try and pick out things that are more specific to each job? For example I worked in two nursing homes as a CNA and then as a traveling CNA with 2 agencies at the same time. Anyone able to give any feedback? I feel as if copying and pasting my job descriptions wouldn't look very good.
Hello! I am going to be a senior college student in the fall of 2020. I am currently looking to shadow a PA in Western Mass during the winter or to shadow a PA in or near Milton, Mass during the Fall 2020 semester. I am hoping to apply to PA school within a year after graduating and shadowing is one of the last requirements that I need to do. I am looking to do around 30 hours.
Hello! I'm currently taking ochem (the second ochem class to complete the ochem unit requirements for some pa programs) but I'm not taking the lab. Would the lab be needed to complete the unit requirement even though my ochem units would suffice? there's literally one school I am going to apply to that says preferred requirement for ochem or biochem preferred with lab but I am not taking lab because of the course load. Would it detrimental if i dont take lab at all? as long as im taking the ochem classes..?
