  1. Hello! i am a sophomore in college and set to graduate in May 2020. I am having troubles finding health care hours. Every job i’ve seen is full time, and i can’t do that with 18-21 credits every semester and two kids. The only job i’ve found is a Direct Support Professional. These people work with disabled people, kids and adults. Working with kids means watching them, giving them their medications, taking to therapy etc, and adults live in group home settings. So feeding, medications, etc. I was wondering if this would count for HCE? The program i’m looking into just says a list of some jobs and says “not limited too” and I emailed the program for help and they didn’t clarify anything.
  2. Hey, how about areas that are still pretty hot for getting hired? Here's where my email box says is the best around me. - Tucson, AZ. Not a bad place I guess, but nothing impressive. I mean U of A is there, and that's about it. Tons of jobs. - Remote and/or small (read: crappy) desert towns such as Yuma or Bullhead City seem quite desperate. Some are only a few miles from Vegas if that is your thing. - Prescott (and Payson), AZ - in the high piney woods, seem like quite nice small towns and only an hour and change from both Phx and Flagstaff. I turned down an EM job there as a new grad, which hurt real bad, because I would retire there. Phoenix is about average demand, I guess. There are now three PA programs in the Metro, two of them quite large, so that may change... Where would you recommend someone who is mobile to find work easily?
  3. Hey everyone, I guess you could say I'm in a sticky situation with my current hospital job. I work quite a bit, and am also in my last semester of undergrad. I'm doing a year of post-bacc work before PA school, so I want to continue to work for a while. The problem is that I've only been at my job a couple of months and I'm not happy with it. While the staff is great, the manager is just rude. Because of this being my last semester, I really want to make it count and get great grades. However I feel as if working this many hours is negatively impacting this. When I asked to reduce my hours, he basically laughed in my face and told me to figure it out (like my options were to leave or drop a class). I have enough hours to apply to grad school, however I wanted more experience, hours, and of course money. As a Very last option I'm considering leaving and finding a different hospital job. How bad would it look to only have a few months of this hospital job on a grad school app? They know school comes first as I said that when I was hired in, but are being very rude and unaccomodating about it all. I've dealt with bad management before but this is a whole new ballpark for me. Any advice?
  4. I am starting a PA program in January. I have 2 kids, who will be 2 yrs old and 6 months old, at that point. My husband and I are deciding whether he should work or stay at home while I'm in the program. In his current job (for an organ procurement org) he works evenings. So that means we will need part time child care, but that he and I will virtually never see each other. The other option is for him to stay at home with the kids, not need childcare, get to actually see him some, but obviously that means living off of loans (i.e. more debt). Ive googled this topic and i've mostly seen posts about guys in PA school and wife stays home with kids. I;m worried if he is working we are both going to be burning the candle at both ends between work/school and caring for the children with our opposite schedules. do most people in the program with kids have a "stay at home" spouse? Is it realistic to get by living only on loans for the duration of the program? help!
  5. Hello all, I am a prospective PA student, and was just wondering if any of you have come across this kind of hypothetical situation and how it has played out: You're in some kind of public place when you hear a commotion and realize someone had a medical emergency, and people are saying "Is there a doctor here?" You identify yourself as a PA saying you can help. I'm almost imagining, in a comical sense, a scenario like "I'm a PA, I can help, what happened?" "You're a what? What's that?" And someone else walks up and says "I'm red cross first aid certified." "Oh ok great, you're first aid certified, OK you help." Do you feel that the public is educated enough about PAs and what they do, or do you still have to explain to people, and how do you see the trend moving forward (and why)? Thanks!

  8. hey everybody I am an undergraduate student with a lot up upper division math, science and bio on the transcript, no bachelor degree. I had heard that you can get a job as a working PA with a Bachelors Degree in PA, a certificate and a passing PANCE score. Is this restricted to specific states or is it not applicable at all? if not then would it be better to earn a Bachelor's Degree in biology somewhere then continue to a school with a Masters in PA or to start out all over again at some of these combined, accepting "fresh out of high school student" schools? I have heard that the combined programs are not as comprehensive and lack some foundation. any input is appreciated!! THANKS

  10. Hi All! I have recently relocated to the LA area from the east coast to be near my family. I have only been out here for about 2 weeks and have had a few interviews but am having trouble finding continuously new open jobs in the area. I know that SO many PA positions are available by word of mouth, which for me is difficult as I am new to the area and don't have many medical connections not having gone to school/rotations out here. Does anyone have any idea about PA job fairs at hospitals in the area? I know on the east coast, large hospitals such as NY-Presbyterian, will hold an open interview day for PA's and new grads. Or any tips on networking out here? I joined CAPA which has provided the most legitimate potential interviews but am still feeling the lag. I don't ideally want to go back to the east coast for work, but if things don't change around here soon I may have to!
  11. Hey guys, I am starting PA school this May at RFUMS in North Chicago, and I am already anxious about finding a job once I graduate, taking into account that I am not a US Citizen or permanent resident. I am assuming I will have to use my OPT chance first then switch to a H1-B visa!! :sadface: If anyone has any insight to calm my nerves a bit or simply share their experience if they have been in anything like this, please let me know :) Thanks in advance! Nidal
  12. I am pursuing work in the medical field which I plan to do until PA school and I want to know what jobs will be more appealing to admissions and provide more valuable experience. I am finished with the Certified Nursing Assistant program and just took the exam but recently received advice that admissions would not really care about that experience and would prefer work as an ER tech, volunteering until a paid position opened. I'm hoping to pursue work that makes me most desirable to PA school admissions so any input is appreciated.
  13. Hi :) My name is Rosemary Ajnassian, I am currently pursuing a career as a PA in California. I was wondering where the majority of jobs are available for PA's? In what kind of environment do they work most? I also understand that PA's can own their own clinic but they need to be supervised by a Physician. How does that work? Looking forward to your responses...Thank you for your time :)
  14. Hello all, I am getting ready to start PA school in June, and I have some concerns, because I have a 3 month old baby and do not want to become so involved in a career that I end up having very little time for her. My question for you all is this.. How many options are there for finding part-time PA work? My plan when I finish school is to be able to work part-time until my kids are older and in school. I just want to know how practical and reasonable it is to assume that I will be able to find work easily for part-time. How often do you come across this and what exactly does life as a part-time PA look like, i.e., how many days/hours per week are you working? Is it possible to ask off weekends and holidays, etc. I feel that I am taking somewhat of a risk in entering PA school with this plan in mind, because I am really not open to working full-time right away because it is so important to me to have time at home with my children. Thoughts? Thanks everyone for your input!
