I am a Pre-PA student living in Dallas Texas looking for some current issues facing PAs in Texas.  Can anybody able to offer any insight?  Thanks!

Hi, I have only practiced in Houston and 1 thing I have noticed for myself, you may not have the same problem, is that it is competitive.  Im learning that now that I am looking for new employment. However, I had secured my first job here less that 1 month out of PA school, fortunately. And I am from MD. 

Also, I have a Bachelor's and not a Master's Degree so that adds to my difficulty.  I actually receive quite a few call backs on my CV but when they see that I have a bachelor's they  tell me that a Master's is required for the position. And then I'm back to square one.

 

So from my limited experience here, competition and education requirements are issues.  But, I'm sure some other more seasoned TX PAs can and will chime in to assist you.

Let me guess. It's a requirement for school or an application. If someone takes a moment to peruse the Texas forum I think one would find all they need.

You cant's work for MinuteClinic without A Master's lol. Call up University of Nebraska and do their bridge. It's easy, but not cheap. You absolutely will need an MPAS going forward in your career.

Great choices for bachelor's folks.  Bunch of cash but easy bridge so says the Kat (Huskerville, aka Nebraska), or less cash and don't know how easy bridge is (Touro)?
