  • biognosisThank you for taking the time to respond, late or not! I appreciate it. As for what I meant, I was unsure of where you were located (still am), but assumed you weren't based in the US because of the Australasian certification, so it was 'when did you take premed classes, if that was/is required for your place of residence'. I'm not familiar with the process outside of the US or the UK and going on my assumption, was just trying to not make myself look like a dumbo if the system within the US ---
  • Oww okay i see. :) well im in the Philippines and im currently studying in university of sto. Tomas w/c is the oldest and one of the most prestigious med school here in our country and to be able to take medicine here you need to have a pre-med course.In my school as long as your course is a bachelor of science you can instantly go straight to med without any need to take supplemental subjects, but,that’s only in the school im currently in cause some med schools here are strict with the subj units so you have to take them to be able to enroll.if you are interested on studying here you can ask me anything you want to know and ill answer it if i can. :D

  • biognosisthat is/was required for wherever you live? Did you do BSN or ASN? Did your desire to become a doctor/surgeon emerge from one or more of your experiences as a nurse/EMT-B? Or did you already possess that desire and simply wanted to be 100% it was something you wanted to undertake?
  • I did BSN. Becoming a doctor was my dream since i was little and wanting to be a surgeon came up when i had this duty as a student nurse in a hospital O.R. My clinical instructor commended me for being a great scrub nurse and i also came to enjoy every surgeries. For the part of what was required where i live, i don’t quite get that part of the question can you clarify that a little?

  • biognosisHiiiiii hi hi! You certainly don't have to respond, but I was wondering - I always wonder - about the path you've taken to get to where you are? I enjoy comparing/contrasting with people and finding out how/when they discovered that medicine, in any form, was for them. You're a registered nurse, an EMT-B (Australasian registered?), and now a first year medical student...or so I've gotten from your about me. Which came first, RN or EMT-B? At what point did you take your pre-med classes, if (cont)
  • Im sorry for the late reply. Well, RN came first cause i was really aiming for medicine ever since and i thought that being a nurse was the best premed course. As for the emt-b, i found it interesting when some emt group visited our school to conduct an emergency scenario and practice. So, when i graduated nursing, while waiting for my board exam results i took a bridging course of emt-b that is australian accredited. After a year or so of practice and working i applied for med school. :)
