  1. I currently work in family medicine and urgent care. Our owner decided that our clinic will not be testing patients for Covid19. His reasoning: if we get a positive case, he would have to quarantine most of the staff and possibly shut down for a couple weeks. Last week he decided to designate one room in the clinic to triage patient with flu/covid19 symptoms/signs. We test for both Influenza and strep. If both are negative depending on comorbidities etc then we ask patient to monitor symptoms at home or go to the health department for testing or we admit them to the hospital. My question for
  2. I've been offered a job in NC in a busy family medicine/urgent care/women's health clinic. They already have 8 PAs and 5 physicians. They have hired many of their PAs straight after graduation, so I will have the support and training needed as a new grad. This is what is offered to me. Salary: $90,000 per year 2 weeks vacation 1 week CME with $1500 spending Health and dental insurances DEA application fee reimbursement The issue with this offer is the fact that physician who owns this practice is currently traveling out of the country for 1 month and he tells
  3. As a new grad, do we negotiate from the 50th% and up? What if they give me an offer between the 25th % and 50th%? how do I convince them that I need to be paid more like 75th % and higher? I guess my question is how do they determine within 0 - 1 year of experience where I fall on the AAPA range? Also if offer was made via phone and only salary and health benefits were given, should I negotiate the salary first then asked for other information? I thought the offer would be a package. Thank you.
  4. I hope some of you will help me with this. Thanks already! I have recently received a job offer in rural family medicine clinic that is located 3.5 hours from home. There is a NP and a physician full time at the clinic. This will be my first job since PA school. I went to 1 interview with them and they paid for travel and hotel. I genuinely enjoyed speaking with the staff during my interview and I would be very happy to work there. When I got the phone call for the offer a couple of days ago, they only mentioned salary and he said because I will be full time I will have full
  5. I have the same question. After passing the boards, a temporary license is given for about 3 months I think. How can I get a license in another state with this temporary license? What if I can't find a job within the 3 months given in SC? The temporary license can't be renewed or extended. Thanks
  6. Hi!! Can I please have them too? my email is: nasista29ther@gmail.com. Thanks
  7. Thank you! It has been a long wait. Does anyone know anything about housing options around the campus?
  8. Hi! Yes all fingers crossed that some people choose other schools because NOVA Jacksonville is my number one choice of all schools. I am very sure we won't here anything this week, but definitely next week. I have an interview 10 hours away in 2 weeks at another school, so I am praying that I hear from nova before then to cancel that interview to save some money. How many people do you think is on that list? did Kandee say? Good luck to you
