    I spoke with SMU admissions today and they said they do not send out confirmation emails. As long as our applications are verified on CASPA, we are good.

    I’m not sure of the total number on the waitlist but I figure it’s 30-60. It always depends on the cohort but there’s a possibility that if you’re high on the list, which I know they don’t give out rankings, you can possibly get in. There’s many people in my cohort that were waitlisted. I know of at least 7 but there’s probably more I just never asked anyone and only know because they offered up the info. Keep your head up!

    Also got an invite today, but denied because I got into another program. Hopefully someone else gets a call soon! Good luck to all those interviewing!

    If you don’t need the job..... demand, yes demand, a meeting with clinic manger and medical supervision. state that you will not see more then 2.5 patients per hour ..... period. This is is what you were hired for, what you can and will do to deliver good care and if they do not allow this to happen hand them a resignation letter on the spot. screw these bean counters and non medical people treating us like widget manufacture. Just simply say no. If they state you are in contract tell them that you are in contract for what you were hired for, not the stupidly high productivity you are rejecting. Hold you head high, dress and act professional, and quit on the spot if they do not meet your requests. You can not redo this so make sure you have ALL demands in one concise form.....ie cme, PTO, max patients per day. if they accept your resignation but state you have X weeks of work still say fine, work you pace that is safe and leave on time. This means they will have to cancel patients but this is their problem not yours.

    Except, respectfully I think PA's should absolutely be concerned with losing their jobs. Corporatists looking for cheaper labor won't give 2 craps about where someone did their rotations. "Do you have a license?" "Will you work for (insert low offer)?" "Sorry but we have phased out benefits". "Why?" "Simple, we had 37 NP's and 7 PA's apply for this one job! We figured someone will take it even without benefits..." Meet the future.

    Oh my goddddd. Got an invite too! Was NOT expecting this. chose the 10/21 date. anyone wanna exchange numbers and get to know each other beforehand? Heard its a group interview, would be helpful to have familiar faces during the process! So excited, congrats to everyoneee who got an invite! Also, does anyone know if they do rolling admissions? Is it wise to interview earlier?

    My NP school had a standardized process of evaluating any clinical rotations. I can’t vouch for other programs and the rigor of what they did, but our process was a bit onerous. They actually rejected one of mine, which was frustrating, because it was a solid clinical rotation, but they took issue with the certification of the provider that was on record as being my preceptor. I just had a different physician designated instead, so it worked out. So yeah, the familiar argument of the lack of standardization between programs is present, and I get it. But there is a contractually agreed upon criteria involved, which is also an issue of the facility and the school don’t agree. I found it to be a real pain. I guess there’s nothing that prevents the oft suggested trope that every NP clinical rotation is lacking. This will be a moot point going forward because future accreditation for NP programs will require them to arrange clinical rotations for students. This will phase in as a requirement for any programs that reaccredit. It won’t happen all at once, but will be totally switched over within the next few years.

    I don’t but a lot of people in my cohort do. Call housing tomorrow and ask them how to get on the list for housing. They’ll direct you to the person you need to talk to and get you on the list. They’ll most likely tell you that you’re 60-70 on the list but I swear they tell that to everyone. My classmates that were told that pretty much all got into the housing

    The part I don't understand is how NPs find their own rotation sites, even paying companies to find rotations for them, without any standardization. Absolutely I learned a TON while I was sitting in the classroom during PA school, but the REAL learning came during my rotations. The majority of them were AWESOME, and only one that was subpar. But, the amount of learning, and solidification of what I learned during the didactic year, during clinicals was key to my development as a provider. To leave that up to the student to find and then not ensure that it is a quality rotation blows my mind!

    Interviewed there on 9/13 and received an acceptance call a week later, on 9/20. They said that emails from admissions will be sent out tomorrow (Tuesday) with further details. Pretty psyched, they look like they have an excellent program and seem to really like paramedics. Happy to answer any questions anyone has. Good luck to everyone who has an upcoming interview!

    I'm going to say something very important and thoroughly politically incorrect. Understand it anyways, even if you choose to reject the advice: Stop behaving like a woman. Act like a man. That is to say, stop being concerned with pleasing people, maintaining harmony, and using indirect approaches. Start by using demands, data, and brinksmanship without trying to be nice about it at all. Practice saying this, or something similar: "You're going to start paying me $10/hour more as of this minute, or I'm walking" If the answer is anything other than "yes" or "OK" ignore it, interrupt and walk out while saying, "It's $20/hour now. You know where to find me if you change your mind" and LEAVE. Mind you, you need to do what is required by a contract, so do that. If you think you can't do that, mock interview the raise conversation with your husband or someone else you trust. If they catch you saying "I'm sorry", "Please", "I've been loyal...", or anything of the sort, they should stop you and make you do it all over again. You are a PROFESSIONAL. You CARE FOR PEOPLE, and YOU MAKE MONEY for the organization. Don't beg. Don't grovel. Two other midlevels have left, so you have them over a barrel. Use it, ESPECIALLY if your family financial situation is stable enough you can walk away. DO not be a doormat. Do not let your employer treat you like a doormat just because you lack a Y chromosome.

    Just got waitlisted. Interviewed 08/29. Does anyone know if they reject anyone after interviews or do they mostly accept/waitlist people? I’m trying to gauge to see if me getting waitlisted this early was a gentle form of rejection because I thought that they would compile the waitlist once they have interviewed everyone.

    State specific...but some states require "accrued" PTO to be paid out as income if someone leaves (regardless of the situation). Therefore, I am ALWAYS a fan of accrued PTO compared to a PTO bank. I'm sure some states require all PTO to be paid out, and others that don't require anything, but MI does require an employer to pay out accrued PTO (not banked PTO...ask me how I know...ugh).

    Bob Bob Bob....wwhat are we going to do with you stepping in the dogma like that? It's like the drunk uncle nobody wants to confront. The high quality NPs are starting to feel the burn of the under-trained and unprepared. It is a broad brush painting some of the wrong people. The biggest problem is health care being run like a fast food frannchise and administrators willing to take any warm body as long as they have a license.. I'm tired this morning so I'm a bit more dour than usual but things just seem grim some days.
