Do any members here have any concern of PA job saturation in the future?
I am an RN and NP saturation is a hot topic with lots of for profit schools popping up cranking out ill-prepared nurse practitioners in exchange for all the tuition money they get to pocket. To my understanding I've heard this is not unique to nursing as Pharmacy and Law schools are also having this problem, but back to topic, are there any concerns of fierce job competition, and decreased compensation as more PA's enter the field?
PA school undoubtedly is more difficult to be admitted to than NP school is. Does this shield the profession from such problems?
Some FNP's are experiencing difficulty obtaining positions due to lack of openings around the country, how healthy is the outlook for PA's?
I have skimmed the BLS projections and do not place much faith in them as they have been wrong in the past and likely will be again.
