  1. Hi All. I wanted to thank you and write a follow up. I got hired and accepted the job! The pay was a little less then what I expected and it was more in line with what JCASh posted. I am okay with the lower compensation because I have a 4 y/o and a one. Y/o I can spend every Friday with. JCASh, do you have any good reference books in OBGyn you can recommend? I really need a CD version so I can listen during my long commute. Thank you!
  2. Seeking for salary advice. I found my dream job in OB/GYN in Wisconsin. I have a job interview coming up soon. Its a private clinic and I do not know if there are any surgical assist requirements. I have 5 years of primary care full and part time working experience. Pros: Working 32 hours/ week. No calls, No Weekends. Full medical benefits Cons: 40 mins one way commute to work I am thinking $75,000-85,000 per year. I don't want to ask for too high because I don't want to scare away the employer. Also, what topics should I brush on before the interview? Thank you in adva
  3. Thank you all for enlightening me. I had no idea I was underselling my skills. The work location is 45 mins north of a very saturated pool of new graduate PA/NPs. I am currently staying at home taking care of two toddlers. A PRN job is not ideal because I would have to scramble to find a babysitter. I can't seem to find part time jobs where I live. I want a balance of taking care of my kids and having a career. Thank you for your advice.
  4. Hi all, Looking for advice. I am being interviewed for a PRN position for occupational and primary care position. I have 5 years of occupational and primary care working experience. The job does not pay for health insurance, vacation or sick time, no CME money. The job is 45 mins commute one way and there is no payment for car maintence or miles. I need to know what hourly wage I should be asking for? I am thinking $50 per hour. Is that too much? Too little? Help please, I am clueless. Thank you for reading.
  5. Hello, I am thinking about taking up a new job as a wound care specialist PA-C. I have very little experience in wound care but the job provides training/ wound fellowship. Does anyone have any experience as a wound care specialist? What are the challenges or rewards of being wound care specialist? What does a typical work day look like? How many patients do you see and how much support ( supervising doctor's time) do you get? how much of your job involves traveling? Does a wound care specialist get paid between $70,000-$80,000 or should it be more because it is considered a specialty?
  6. Thank you so much! Very helpful information and I will take your advice to heart.
  7. Hi, I am up for the PANRE recertification exam. I need advice as which focus exam I should pick. I primarily work with adults at correctional centers and occupational health. I see very few pediatrics cases. Should I pick Adult Medicine? Does that topic covers internist cases, or ICU cases? I have no experience in the ICU. Does the primary care focus exam has pediatric cases? Thank you.
  8. Hi. I am also interested in the vanRhee book and the Data chem. Please let me know if you are still selling them. Thank you.
  9. Thank you so much Joane Bergen! THank you for your generosity and I will email you.
  10. I am have to take my PANRE next year and I have been out of a full time PA position for two years. I work two days a week and my company does not provide any CME money. So I have to pay for my DEA Fee, my PANRE fees, NCCPA fees, and all the study material costs out of my own pocket. This is very expensive!! Here are the list of USED PANRE study material I would like to buy. 1. Lange Q&A Physician Assistant Examination, Sixth Edition [Paperback
  11. Best of luck! I am planning to take my recertification soon. I feel sick to my stomach thinking about the PANRE. Good luck to you.
  12. Thank you so much MsJay098 for posting this. Thanking for sharing your study materials! Is this your first year for PANRE? If not how did it compare to other past PANRE exams? Thank you once again for your advice, much appreciated!
  13. Calling all PAs and PA Students, the Parenting magazine July 2013 Issue 276 page 30. The magazine reports that parent should chose NP over a PA if parents want prescriptions for their children, "PAs can't write scripts". I have written to the editor to ask them to correct this error. Please write to the editors.. http://www.parents.com/parents-magazine/ I am posting a flickr picture of the magazine I hope you can click on it and see the article and the incorrect statement <a href=" " title="IMG_0403 by viet.souvannarath,
