  1. I’m a physician assistant, who made an error in not listening ALL the non-PA jobs I have EVER held on a job APPLICATION. Not a resume, as that only lists my professional experience. Specifically I didn’t list a scribe position I was fired from because the chief scribe fired me because she was worried her boyfriend was flirting with me. I also didn’t list the retail jobs, the work study jobs, the babysitting gigs I held. Apparently when I applied several years ago for my first PA job I apparently disclosed to this institution the above scribe job on my application. When I applied th
  2. I am a PA with one year of work experience in my field. I work in the inpatient setting and because of a toxic environment, I switched in the middle my one year contract to a different but related team who needed the coverage and would also be opening another position on that team. The hope was that if things went well, I would be the top candidate for the position and could start a new contract with them. Since I switched teams, I have flourished. I have an amazing relationship with the other APP, all of the attendings, the techs and the nurses and I know that I am doing a great job at

  6. My supervising physician agreed with me regarding the incident. That even though I handled it differently than the nurse Practioner would have, it was still within the standard of care. HOWEVER I was advised by the PA/NP team boss that regardless of what I was told to do by my attending over the phone (which was opposite what the NP had told me), that I must instead follow the NP because she was the senior, was on site, and also “supervises me clinically”. I was told because I am a new PA, I must ALWAYS do what the nurse Practioner tells me. I was not aware of this and I do not agr
  7. I am a new graduate and have been at my job now at the hospital for 4 months in a high stress speciality. I thought it had been going really well. There is definitely a learning curve but I thought I was doing okay. ANYWAYS, 3 weeks ago, I got in a disagreement with my supervisor (a senior Nurse Practioner). After the incident, I had concerns that she was being retaliatory towards me. Since her supervisor was involved in this disagreement, I had communicated my concerns regarding retaliation against me by my boss as I had noticed definite signs she was all of the sudden after me.
