Additional Information Regarding Patient Care:
Applicants should submit documentation of shadowing and direct patient care experiences in CASPA under the "Health Related Experience" and “Employment and Volunteer Experience” sections within the application. Applicants often have backgrounds in such areas as nursing, nursing assistant, medical assistant, EMT, paramedic, athletic training, and patient related volunteer experiences. Please keep in mind that patient contact experience with a higher scope of practice and more extensive education will be weighted higher than a patient contact experience with a more limited scope of practice and less education, i.e., an RN with 3 years of experience will be rated higher than an EMT-B with 300 hours of experience. Also, note that experience gained as part of a degree program, i.e. nursing externships, will be weighted lower than experience as a working professional in that field. Please note that each program may weigh experiences differently based on program requirements and curriculum. Jefferson does not have a specific form required to log shadowing hours.
