I asked that same question to the admissions counselor and she said that it does not negatively impact your potential admission into any program. So on that advice, I applied for both programs, which will increase my chances of getting accepted in one of these programs (I'm hoping:clown: )
That's Victory for the compliment. I worked very hard for those grades, like I'm sure everyone else does who is applying to these programs. Man, the competition is high! I figure I'll get into a program when the timing is right. Things always happen for a reason.
I'm interested in Case Management because I think it will be a good fit with my BS in business. However, I think I'll really like hands on patient care too. Right now I volunteer at UC Davis Med Center, and I love helping the nursing care for the patients. The nurses on my ward are great, they are pulling me in and including me on procedures, and showing me a lot of stuff.
Last week I got to sit in on an in service on an indwelling rectal catheter. It was interesting. I can't believe some day I'll actually be doing that sort of procedure on someone! I'm looking forward to learning all this stuff, crazy as it sounds, even the 'poopy' jobs sound fun!
