    RN or PA?

    Also, when I apply for PA school must I have my bachelors degree finished? Because my pre-reqs will be done but ill have a semester left for my bach degree completion. And ill be done with my bach degree before the PA program starts. and id have to apply to nursing school in two months so i wouldnt have much time to shadow a PA in the mean time. Thats why i have so many questions. If i chose the PA route id of course shadow

    RN or PA?

    Thank you so much for all this information, I was looking to apply to Nova in ft. Laud and keiser university for the PA programs, if thats what I end up doing. Both dont have a minimum for experience. I know I want to do something in the medical field, im just not sure what. Everyone tells me not to do nursing, almost everyone! I was even tutoring a RN for orgo chem and he told me do PA because RN is horrible and hates it and he was a RN for 5 years. But I have never heard anything wrong with PA. And i looked at examples for patient experience and i THINK it was nova who listen scribe under. And i know i can be a scribe for a year before applying for PA school. But im not sure how nova and keiser are with acceptances for their program. Again thank you everyone!

    RN or PA?

    I added this to my discussion also but And since I have a year to complete my bachelors I was planning on trying to get a job as a scribe or something for hours of experience. And im scared to wait to go to PA school because they have cut offs for when you took your classes. And I took orgo like 3 years ago so if I graduate nursig school and want to go to PA school I have to retake most of my sciences.

    Im not sure what to do in life. I know they have different pre-reqs but since I was a neuroscience major I have all the pre-reqs for both EXCEPT the genetics and bachelors degree (i have like 5 more classes so one more year for it). I have a 3.96 GPA currently, ive worked in a restaurant for 4 years and have been a tutor at my university for organic chem and psychology for 3 years. And I also worked in a organic chemistry research lab for two semesters. Due to me having to work those jobs (i thought i wanted to do med school but I dont) i only have about 150 hospital volunteer hours. Would I even be able to get into PA school in florida? I wouldnt want to move from home since thats money i dont have to spend so theres only 2 id apply to. Are the hours long? Do you work holidays and weekends? I dont care about most holidays except christmas and thanksgiving. I was thinking about going to nursing school since id get out a year before and I know 100% id get into nursing school but I dont want to work night shifts or holidays (or at least the two holidays i mentioned). And every nurse i talk to HATES it but ive never spoken to a PA. Im scared I wont get into PA school and I cant afford that. Im not a good test taker and I probably wont do good on the GRE (i did poorly on the SAT/ACT and great in college). I also want a family and low hours and nurses only work 36 hours a week usually, are PAs like that? Which would you say I should do? And since I have a year to complete my bachelors I was planning on trying to get a job as a scribe or something for hours of experience.
