  1. From a new grad myself who just had a whole contract scuffle/negotiation my advice is to fight for what you feel you are worth. I did and gained $17,000 dollars on my contract. I would log into AAPA, and download the 2015 salary report, or if you message me I can email you my copy. And use that as far as negotiating pay and such. It breaks down all specialties and years of service and gives a 10th, 25th, 50th, 75th, 99th percentile for your pay. To me 2 weeks of PTO is rather low, so I would counter with 3, as well as ask about 401K as well as CME days off and such. And as far as pay goes don't just accept a lower offer cause you feel bad for saying no then coming back 5 months later. The real Question you should ask is why is that position still available after these 5 months? Don't accept pay less than we truly deserve cause you feel bad.
  2. thanks FFighter23, I will have to counter then at X$ an hour x 1872 as my base, then the additional on call montlhly pay
  3. I am currently negotiating my contract as a new grad ER PA. I was hired to work 3 12s a week, then cover i weekend a month (48 hours) for a seperate set wage, on top of my pay for the 3 12s, or 1872 hours a year. My question is: When looking at the AAPA salary report and negotiating hourly pay, does my "base salary" include this weekend pay? I feel like they are trying to pay me less on the weekly shifts because he is paying me an extra "on call" weekend pay a month. Should I push for my base salary to be the national average of 90-93K PLUS the on call weekend pay? I can give more details once I get replies. thanks!

    Kaplan QBank

    I'll have mine for say August 17. Will have 320-330 days left on subscription. So practically a year
  5. PM is quite simple, perhaps from what I hear to simple for the PANCE. And the explanations aren't as good as exam master or as good as Kaplan(so I've heard). I use EM not and PM and am thinking of buying Kaplan for more of a middle ground of Questions to study from
  6. It would be an MD from 1900-0700 as well with me and a swing PA from 1200-0000. So I'd have the MD for questions and issues
  7. It is in Colorado. From the AAPA salary report anywhere in the U.S. New grads are 80-90k in any specialty. I am all for higher wages but I feel that you all have experience and I expect if I had 1-3 years of experience or 10+ I should make a lot more than this, but we are new grads. With 0 experience. So places that start on a tiered pay start new grads at the bottom.
  8. yeah I have a site visit in august for a nocturnist position thats 3-12s a month, 1900-0700, and was told that base pay for new grads is 80-85k, +15% bump for night diff, so around 92-97K starting for a new grad, which is quite good for 13 shifts a month, and a new grad.
  9. 100k for a PA with experience maybe, New Grads they put us at the lowest end
  10. I don't feel like a nocturnist is "to specialized" especially when compared to like an ortho spine or say a deem job What didn't you like about the job? Besides boring Only reason I ask is cause I'm graduating July 30 and have a site visit/interview at my old hospital where I was an Emt for a Nocturnist position. I've had 2 phone interviews with the hospital talent guy and the the medical director of the Hospitalist team and from those I really think the position would be fun. It's basically like yours, the night shift PA is in charge of all ER admissions which he says can be 5 to as many as 25/night, but that no one can do 25 in a night. Then we'd merely try and line them and and get them tee'd up so to speak for the morning crew. Pay is similar but with a new night diff % most likely coming into play it'd be near 100k for 3-12s as a new grad. Did you just not like being alone? Or redundant admissions? Not a night person? Anyone can feel free to chime in and give me advice as well. I'd much appreciate it :)

  12. I have heard so many Pros and Cons of each, and with graduation fast approaching in 100+ days and the PANCE coming up a week or two after I am curious as to what Q banks compare most to PANCE? EXAMMASTER I have used ExamMaster for all of our EOR exams, but hear from 99% of people that these Qs are far more detailed/intense than the PANCE. Some Questions are easy but there are quite a few that are multiple paragraphs and I am left staring at the screen. PANCEMASTER I was told by some preceptors that this is all they used and passed the PANCE. I purchased it and have answered roughly half of the 1300 Qs they offer and it is FAR easier than ExamMaster, lots of simple 1-2 sentence questions and I feel like it might be "too easy". any opinions? KAPLAN QBANK Heard mixed things on this as well, is it worth purchasing? PACKRATS I have quite a few old ones so use these to study as well, this is kind of the mid ground I feel. NCCPA Practice Exams Worth it?? Thanks in advance for all the replies. I feel comfortable for the PANCE but just want to make sure I pick the best study tools for active (Questions) learning portion.
  13. From using the 11th and having classmates with the 10th its mostly the same, just page numbers are off.
  14. cGPA 3.1...sGPA 3.4 and Pre req GPA 3.92. I've been an EMT for 3 years on a 911 ALS ambulance and 2 1/2 years prior as a volunteer firefighter/EMT. My LOR were from a professor from college/advisor who I became friends with, a PA who I've worked with in the ER bringing patients to him and 3rd was a Paramedic I've worked with for 3 years and taught my EMT class.
