  1. Thank you electric130! LPAK I work 24 hours per week. I just came back from maternity leave and am working 18 hrs/week but plan to transition back to 24 very soon.
  2. Hello, I've been working as a part-time PA ever since I graduated (2 years) and was wondering what kind of benefits are normal and should I expect. What do you get for PTO, CME, health insurance, maternity leave, etc. I get none of the above, so wondering if I can do better and try to bargain for more, or is this pretty much what I should expect everywhere.
  3. There are times I have seen patients without any physician on site due to emergencies.

  6. Hey guys! I was accepted back in Sept. but was lurking around because I wanted to hear back from other schools first. I've decided to attend Towson! Woohoo! I'm really excited to meet everyone and to start the program! S.R.N PA I requested to join the group on facebook :)
  7. When choosing which PA schools apply to, how good the program is and PANCE rates are obviously large factors. But what if two schools have really good PANCE scores? For example George Washington University vs Towson University. Both schools have good passing rates, but you've probably never heard of Towson. Does name really matter. Towson is $22,716 for the entire program- that's dirt cheap! George Washington Univ. is a very great and well known program, has a fancy name, but is $71,492. I'm probably paying more for the name on my resume. Location isn't an issue because they are both
