    What kind of healthcare experience do people have here? Any LPNs, EMTs, or CNAs? I'm volunteering at a hospital right now, but I'm looking at a couple different "hands-on" patient care opportunities.

    I haven't had any direct healthcare experience in say, a hospital, so I didn't really feel like I could add anything under that section of the application considering the way they defined it. I did a full time internship doing recreational therapy in an assisted living facility for a semester. I also worked for about a year as an in-home caregiver and got A LOT of hands on interaction at that job so I'm hoping those two experiences help!

    Ahoy everyone! Thought I would throw in my two cents since my application materials are finally all in place. I've worked as a home health aide and CNA forever. I totally recommend finding casual employment as an aide in a hospital--it's grueling, but it doesn't require much training and you can learn a ton about the nitty gritty of nursing (when my coworkers found out I was finally applying, they asked why on earth I'd go into nursing after all I've seen). Good luck to everyone!

    Has anyone heard any additional information from Georgetown since the initial e-mail saying they received your application? On the application guide, it said that they would be sending out information on the WHC Scholar application in mid February but I haven't heard anything else from them...

    I haven't heard anything since that preliminary email. Hoping for something soon just so I know the gears are moving!

    My GPA is finally calculated on the NursingCAS site! Hopefully this means we'll be getting more information soon

    Mine had to have just been posted because I've been checking it pretty frequently so I'm sure they'll have yours done soon too. Also, I e-mailed admissions asking about when we'd be getting the information on the WHC scholars program so I'll let everyone know if I hear back!

    I checked their site and the important deadline section mentions that we don't hear back until early April. Dang, so far away!!
