  1. Hi, everyone! What are your thoughts on applying to programs with a ARC-PA probationary accreditation status (i.e., "Accreditation-Probation")? I'm a first-time applicant, and a couple schools that I have my eye on currently have probationary statuses (Johnson & Wales University; Monmouth University). I was wondering if it's worth applying to said schools, especially to ones that have had a probationary status for more than two years. Although these schools are still considered accredited, is it safe to apply to & then attend these schools? Do these schools prepare stud
  2. Here is the continuation of the story..... Few days back, I had posted a topic about getting an interview from a school on probation. Well, I got accepted. This was the first time I was applying. I am feeling happy but lost. As I had previously mentioned, I did not apply to many colleges this cycle. Only 5, as I had 2 more pre-requisites to finish and have not taken my GRE. I got one rejection so far and one acceptance( from a school on probation) and yet to hear from the others(3 left). Before the probation issue, I really did like this school. It was close to home-2
  3. I am in a big dilemma. I did not apply to many schools this year, only 5. I recieved one rejection and got one interview invitation from a school that is under probation. This is the first time this school has been under probation, but I cannot help feeling a bit worried. But at the same time, is this my only chance this year? Should I just go with it or just try harder next year. Can anyone offer any advise on this matter?
  4. I am supposed to start a program in January. I have recently learned that the parent institution's accreditation has been changed to probational. The PA program itself has continued ARC accreditation. However, if the institution were to lose its accreditation, the PA program would as well (before I graduate). I realize they could teach out any matriculated classes. Is there any obligation for them to do this? ie if the faculty know the program would close, why would they want to stay? wouldnt they find new jobs to leave asap? Any information would be very appreciated!!!
  5. Piku was born when I was preparing for med school in India,He use to live with his mother and father and two siblings(Thts what I figured).Our backyard was full of jasmine,bougenvilia and crusanthymum plants.I could listen the cuckoo of a koyal every morning.This family was of a very common bird in India,a house sparrow.Me and my sister were obgyn when piku came out of a cracked egg.With tiniest limbs and completely dependent on his mother,it was the most beautiful feeling to take him in my hands.Only after few weeks,when flight muscles,haven't yet developed,piku tried to fly and hurt himself
  6. Hi, I'm currently an RN licensed in the state of California. May goal has always been to enter a PA program. However, because I received 2 DUIs (2006, 2008), my RN license was placed on probation and will remain on my professional license record for 10 years. I do have 5 years experience working--and continue to work--in the profession. I have two questions: 1.) Do PA programs accept students with a misdemeanor criminal background (i.e. 2 DUIs)? 2.) Would a PA program accept a student with a professional license that has been on probation? I appreciate any insights and advice you
  7. Hello! I am currently planning on applying to MUSC's PA program but I am concerned with the probationary status they recently received. Does anyone know why they are on probation and if I should be concerned or not? Thanks!
  8. I am the father of an incoming student, starting at the end of this month. I am uneasy with not knowing the specific reasons that Chatham's PA program in on accreditation probation. A lot of the money that could be sent there is mine. Does anyone have specific details of the reasons for probation? clinical reasons? specifically what? classroom reasons? specifically what?
  9. I apologize to everyone for not using the correct terminology. Forgive me for that. I was not aware of the technical term. ** "Probationary Accreditation" is a temporary status of accreditation assigned when a program does not meet the Standards and when the capability of the program to provide an acceptable educational experience for its students is threatened. Once placed on probation, programs that still fail to comply with accreditation requirements in a timely manner, as specified by the ARC-PA, may be scheduled for a focused site visit and/or risk having their accreditation withdrawn
