Hello, I'm a second year college student and I'm very interested in learning more about the Physician Assistant field. I would like to speak with students who have already been accepted to get an idea of how the PA student lifestyle is, as well as advice for a Pre-PA student. As for shadowing, I would like to shadow someone, in any speciality, for however many hours/days as possible. If you're in the Raleigh/Durham/Cary, NC area, contact me and I'll greatly appreciate it! Thank you, Yasmin A.
I have been offered a full time job with 100% paid PA program tuition by my former employer, a large healthcare system where I worked for 17 years. Our family relocated 4 years ago to a different state. If I were to take this wonderful opportunity, I would need to drive 3 hours one way on Sunday evenings, stay for the week, and drive 3 hours home on Friday evenings. We have children ages 8 and 10, and it would be a difficult thing as a family to decide if they should come with me, stay here with their dad, and of course, the ultimate question, is it really worth the sacrifice to break the family apart - at what cost does career come before, or after, family. In the western part of the state I live in, North Dakota, there is a huge population boom due to the wonderful oil jobs. Five small towns, two of them with hospitals and three of them with clinics, cannot keep up with the demand of services for healthcare. They are desparate for nurses, techs and at present, they are desparately recruiting for family practice physicians. I have proposed to them, hiring PAs, like myself, with a similar deal-they pay my PA program tuition. The incentive for me going to Western ND, as opposed to my former employer's offer, is that there are daily flights to these tiny towns from the city I live in. In the proposal, I included the need to fly me in and out on a daily basis so I can be home with my family in the evening. I suggested they consider doing this for several of their open positions (nurses, techs, etc.) Do any of you reading this have other ideas or things you would suggest I consider if I am given the opportunity to further negotiate? Thank you.
Hi everyone, I have some questions that i would like to ask because I want to make an informed decision of what school to transfer to as undergrad. The thing is that Have been admitted to both Mercy college health science to Physician assistant program, and to Seton hall biology to MSPA. Due to my academic excellence, I was also admitted to mercy honor school. But, I live in NJ: 7 miles to Seton Hall, approx 16 miles to Mercy but if i choose Mercy it is not gonna matter cause I'm gonna take the train which is about 40 min travel time. If I go to Seton hall it means to having to take more loans compare to Mercy. To make it clear, I don't not care about school rank. If I choose Seton Hall, I will know after a semester in the school if they gonna take me in the PA program based upon my academic excellence during that semester, which is not a problem for me. If I choose Mercy, it seems that I have to keep a 3.2 GPA and having 500 hours of health care experience. Probably, I won't know If I'm going to get admitted into the PA until I graduate, and being reviewed by a comity...correct me if I'm wrong here. My question: has anyone of you went from undergrad from Mercy to the PA in Mercy or know someone who been there that can shed some light on how it is done for students who did their undergrad from Mercy in Health science to PA? Thank you for reading all of this and for your answers.:;-):
