thenutritionPA Posted May 28, 2021 Share Posted May 28, 2021 Hey everyone! I am on my way to become a registered dietitian but have dreams of become a PA someday. In regards to PCE, my goal is to land a clinical inpatient dietitian job once I finish my dietetic internship, which I see typically counts as PCE. However, I was curious on what others thought of outpatient counseling and private practice counseling for medical nutrition therapy because I have not seen any discussions on this before. What about if it's virtual counseling? For reference (CASPA definitions): PCE: “Experiences in which you are directly responsible for a patient's care. For example, prescribing medication, performing procedures, directing a course of treatment, designing a treatment regimen, actively working on patients as a nurse, paramedic, EMT, CNA, phlebotomist, physical therapist, dental hygienist, etc.” HCE: “Both paid and unpaid work in a health or health-related field where you are not directly responsible for a patient's care, but may still have patient interaction; for example, filling prescriptions, performing clerical work, delivering patient food, cleaning patients and/or their rooms, administering food or medication, taking vitals or other record keeping information, working as a scribe, CNA (depending on job description), medical assistant, etc.” Thanks so much!
