  1. There is much more to this than just the questions. Take a look at Peter Betge’s posts on the Huddle. What has been posted on the Huddle by staff is in my opinion condescending.
  2. I think her and the rest of the AAPA leadership’s silence on this issue speaks volumes. There are thousands of very pissed off PAs out there and not one bit of damage control has come forth
  3. I have not received the survey yet but from what I’m hearing it sounds to me like the people who wrote the questions have no clue about what we are or what we do. I would not come down on the AAPA about this. They probably have no idea that the company they picked has no clue
  4. I agree that type of data is totally irrelevant to title change. My guess is they are going to sell it
  5. According to the Bill History at that link it is still in a House Sub-Committee not in the Senate yet
  6. You got that right Army. A strategy like that is political suicide
  7. That sums it up very nicely. Nothing is going to happen one way or the other until the consulting firm completes its study next year. So why bother to get all worked up over it now.
  8. No that is not correct. The survey will be sent to non-members but they can not set up an account without joining AAPA. The link I s to a page where AAPA members can update their profiles.
  9. What exactly is your point with this? What does it have to do with the subject of this post or the fact that VA succeeded in getting an outstanding bill passed?
  10. According to the AAPA co-signature requirements in VA are determined at the practice level and have been for several years. (see https://www.aapa.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/6_KE_Chart_5-5-17.pdf)
  11. The only program I know of at RIH/Brown is the emergency medicine physician extender residency. The program is open to PAs and NPs.
  12. The website says that the degree is in “PA Medicine”. What is P.A. Medicine?
  13. The midwife program is a direct entry midwife program not a nurse midwife program. No nursing degree needed to get in and no nursing degree awarded when you get out. Graduates are eligible for licensing in a number of states as midwives but not nurse midwives (I.e. APRNs). I believe that midwives in some states have limited prescribing but not 100% sure on that.
