  1. a lot of psych jobs i searched wanted a PMHNP most likely due to the lack of supervision needed and billing purposes. I've read/heard a PA cannot bill for certain things in psych unless they have a CAQ whereas a NP can = more money. I think the nation in general has a paucity of psychiatrists so that factor will always be there.
  2. Inpatient services (consults, various psych units, etc.). Hospitalist group and model. Western US major metro. Very high COL here, though from what I understand, it's pretty common for psych NPs to bring in ~150k+ in major cities throughout the US, though you usually need 1-2 years experience this was their post on first page
  3. Do you have the details about the clinic? Mainly cosmetic? If so, that brings in beaucoup money. I'll echo the above, how much exp do you have in derm?
  4. Did you work at all the first year? How much did you retain from PA school? Specific specialty in mind? How does studying compare vs PA school? Do you attend class? Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck or 100 duck sized horses? Thanks
  5. had a 18 year old come in to free clinic on rotations because he had a piece of dry ramen noodle stuck under his nail lol. Had another guy 19 YO male, same clinic, come in because he "couldn't last as long" as he used to. "i've tried smoking weed and drinking to last longer but its not working" i definitely lol'd
  6. lots of "red flags' mentioned above. I've seen much higher offers in chicago-land. Nursing home patients can be complicated and draining....being on call daily would be a drain. Very low salary compounded by the fact that no health insurance is offered. 4-5 year contract is unheard of. I would look elsewhere
  7. Wow, salary seems reallllly low, especially in Socal. No health insurance usually means more money for you in healthcare groups, not sure how that plays out in private practice. Maybe you should ask for RVU production bonus? Ask what you brought in this past year for the practice. Sure there is a learning curve but after a year you will be making that practice beaucoup money and your salary should be more reflective of that.
  8. You should probably/definetly ask people from your program.....this is a PA forum lol. Class varies so much between programs so we can't give you a solid answer. FWIW: i had class 8-5 M-F
  9. as a current student on rotations, one thing i always asked the first day: "is there anything i should work on or something i should be doing that I did not do today" presentation, soap note style etc. This shows you're interested in learning/improving from day 1 and helps you build your skills.
  10. application would be wayyyyy more competitive if this was posted in right section.......lol
  11. I have accepted already. I was informed there is yearly review for salary raise, usually everyone gets 2-3%, sometimes up to 5%. He is very willing to let me do as much as i like including injections/arthrograms in the future
  12. 3% match after 1 year, malpractice covered. The practice has about 20 PAs and this particular surgeon has not had one but wants one and recognizes the learning curve. Most PAs they have were hired as new grads. I enjoyed my ortho rotation, particularly surgery, they do a lot of team coverage for the area which is also appealing.
  13. Your question could have so many variations to it. Usually ER is where the 12s are at, i've been at ERs where ppl have every other weekend shifts or every 3rd...it depends. urgent care is another hot spot for 12s and is usually every other weekend. ER days vary more so than UC in my experience.
  14. Question for you all- i guess the company does not require or have a contract to sign....is this common or should i be worried?
