Someone please help me! I've been trying to ask questions and haven't gotten responses from anyone.
Can someone tell me how I can find a letter to take to the place where I am doing my practicum showing why I am doing this and then how to figure out everything with a proctered exam?
Thank you so much~
I'll try to answer your questions. Proctor exams are taken at the end of the semester. When you are halfway through your semester, a proctor application form will be available on your My Courses page for you to print out and have your proctor fill out and mail to PF for approval. Your Practicum does not start until after your second semester proctors are graded and your clinic/hospital is approved by PF. It is always great to line up a job before starting your practicum, but you can't start on your practicum skills for credit until your practicum starts. As for a letter, there used to be a post from Dr Jim Hurrell with advise for presenting your resume and information about practicum skills. (I thought I'd bookmarked it, but unfortunately can not find it.) I will continue to search for it. I hope this post helps.
Good luck with your studies!
If you go to Academic Groups at the top of this page, go to college, then Veterinary Technician Associate Degree, look under the heading of Popular Documents. There is tons of information regarding what is required for the practicum. I'm sure if you printed them, they would be sufficient in explaining the PF program and what is required for the practicum. Hope this helps!
First, I would like to welcome you to Penn Foster's Vet Tech program and the Community. As you may have noticed, many Vet Tech students like yourself are eager to assist whenever they can.
The information for Practicum 1 will become available to you when you are in semester 2.
It may be a little early to be looking for a site. You don't know how long it might be before you are ready to begin P1. Many things can change between now and that time.
We cannot begin the approval process until semester 2 is completed and all subjects passed.
Again, welcome to Penn Foster College and the Community and continued success with your studies.
