I'd like to go back to college (University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Public Health) for an Occupationarl Health ANP degree.
My past grades are good but I'm stumped at letters of recommendation.
I've read that they should be professors who can attest to your ability to be able to thrive in advanced education.
The trouble is...for the most part they're dead, at least the ones I really admired and connected with. Yup, I'm ooooooold....
I did track down one who's in his 70's, a professor who I admired and who I was lab assistant for--but he no longer even remembered me.
I did return to attain my nursing degree (ADN) (I have a few BS's) around 2001 but frankly none of the professors really ever got to know me--certainly not like the ones in the BS degrees, and worse, I'm not confident at their ability to either remember me or to write effectively.
I can get letters of recommendation from my two prior Medical Directors (I've been running small Occ Health Clinics) and am stumped as to who to ask for the third letter.
Any suggestions for those who know as what is best to do?
