  1. I don't know much about Texas but that offer seems a bit low. Working in psych is very lucrative, I've seen indeed job postings for PAs $100-$125/hr in SoCal.
  2. Hi! I'm a PA in SoCal and I've recently seen an increase in the need for PAs/NPs at COVID testing sites! I would like to know if any of you have an idea of a fair hourly rate when it comes to working at these sites? There are companies who are offering APPs $125/hr to deploy to different locations to help hospitals in need during this crisis. While I don't think the COVID-19 testing jobs are of the same acuity and stress level as treating COVID+ patients in a hospital setting, I do think there is still some associated risk that should be adequately compensated. Most of these positions include working on-site at tents, performing nasal swabs, following up with patients on results, managing stable patients with mild symptoms, etc. Also, because they are temporary/part-time positions, they don't include any benefits and +/- malpractice insurance which also plays a huge role in factoring an hourly rate. What are you all's thoughts? Anyone working at a testing site and have some insight on a reasonable but fair hourly rate to ask for?
  3. Hey everyone!! Hoping to get some insight on my offer for a position at a Level II trauma center in SoCal. I worked with this group of surgeons as a student so I know it would be an excellent learning environment and tons of good exposure. My time will be split weekly, working in trauma + gen surgery one week and strictly in ICU the next. Training will include running traumas, first assist, various procedures, ICU and vent management, etc. No surgery residents. They currently have 3 NPs and 1 PA and are looking to expand. Base salary at $110k. Hours/call: 40hr/week, leaving promptly at end of shift. No overnight shifts as new grad until myself and SP are comfortable. Contract states that call will be paid "standard on call fees" but does not state exact amount. They did stress that being on call is not likely, esp as a new grad. Benefits: Health insurance, they pay 90% of standard costs. Have to pay for my own dental and vision. ( is this normal?) Malpractice insurance covered- will be sure to ask about tail coverage. Not eligible for 401k plan until 1 full year of employment!! Seems a little odd to me, thoughts? PTO: "employee shall accrue 0.05 hours of PTO for every 1 hour of work performed" which if my math is correct comes out to about 10 days of PTO -_- hoping this is a typo because that's extremely low. The APPs currently work 4 10s a week but will likely move to 3 12s as more APPs are hired so I am not sure how this affects the amount of PTO. I am thinking of asking for 4 weeks PTO to include vacation, sick and CME days. CME: $1500, does not state specific number of days off Overall, I am really happy with the offer as a trauma position has been my dream for a long time! Not so happy with the PTO, but believe they will be willing to work with me! I would greatly appreciate your thoughts!
  4. What are you all’s thoughts on completing a residency that is not ARC accredited?
