Question : Previous Health Care Experience

Due to the rigor and intensity of the UCAN program, previous healthcare experience is a critical admissions requirement. It is preferred that applicants have direct patient care experience. Examples of direct patient care include, but are not limited to, experience as a Certified Nurse Aide (CNA), Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), or Medical Assistant (MA).

Within NursingCAS, applicants need to include information about previous/current health care and clinical research positions held (paid or volunteer) and any licenses and certifications related to the health care industry in the uploaded resume as well as the Experiences section.

Note: If an applicant does not include detailed information in the Experiences section of their application, NursingCAS will be unable to calculate total number of hours of healthcare experience (during the review process, we compare total number of hours of healthcare experience across the applicant pool).
