  1. I have invested in residential real estate....not on purpose exactly as I moved when I attended residency and never moved back into my original place. It can be a great investment but a real headache. Things are good for us now that we hired a property management company so we don't deal with the day to day BS. It's can be nice as your tennants should be covering your mortgage, insurance, and property taxes in the perfect scenario and hopefully you can pull in a little profit after that. That is where we are and our little profit also pays most of our mortgage of our current house.

  3. I had an hour commute during PA school. Listened to lectures every day to and from school. I would have rather lived closer but didn't have that option and listening to lectures made the most of it. It's doable but can be exhausting driving an hour to get home after you been in class for 8 hours then in the library for 3 to 4 hours.
  4. I've been given the same reason before but recently applied to a job that was advertised as "NP only" and landed the job because of my unique work experience. Now making twice as much as my last job. It can work out and I encourage all PAs looking for jobs to apply to those NP jobs. It all comes down to two things....work experience and your ability to connect. Do your best, get good experience, and give them no excuse to deny you that job you want.
  5. I too have signed these in the past when I worked in the CCU and the PT worked on my patient. Agree with assessment and plan....signed Bike Mike PA-C
  6. I did. Great experience. Rounded through general cardiology, EP, CT surgery, CVICU, CCU, one-on-one training on reading echos, procedure training - placing Swan's, CVC, vas-caths, arterial lines. Great team leading the residency. Some of the most knowledgeable PA's and NP's I've ever known. Great docs and nurses too. Piedmont is a great place to work.
  7. You do know that Piedmont has a cardiology fellowship for PA's, right?
  8. The problem is that there is a job in my field, in my desired area, with MUCH better pay than I am getting now and I'm "not qualified" simply because I'm a PA. Yes, I could get another PA cardiology job somewhere else but the fact that I'm being denied a job because I'm a PA is total bullsh*t.
  9. Sorry, typo. Yes, they advertised for an NP and denied my application because I'm a PA.
  10. So I saw a job listing for a cardiology NP and applied. I am one of 11 PA's in the country who has completed a cardiology residency. I've worked 4 years in the CCU and 2 years in OP cardiology. I would imagine that I'm qualified for the position.. I was told that the job posters " can't consider a PA". Friggin b*llsh*t.
  11. They are hiring a new grad NP and will train them for a minimum of three months on days. I would assume they would do the same for a new grad PA. Guys says he loves to teach. Sure it's going to be a steep learning curve but not horrible if they get onboarded slowly with a lot of mentoring.
  12. Daly City, CA. About 5 miles south of SF
  13. Want to work nocturnal ICU? I know of a job paying $200K/yr just south of SF.
