  1. Hello Everyone, Is anyone aware of any virtual shadowing opportunities through zoom or any other video platform during this COVID-19 Pandemic?
  2. Is anyone on here (pre-PA, PA-S, or PA-C) a business major / have a business degree? Just out of curiosity, why did you leave the corporate world?
  3. So I finally got a job at my dream hospital!! I am currently working there as a Patient Care Technician/ PCT. However, I will be leaving for PA school next year. I really want to return to this hospital and work as a PA! The problem is that getting a job at my hospital is super competitive. Is there a way for me to ensure/ increase my chances of getting a PA job in this facility in the future? (Also, what do you guys think of requesting a absense of leave instead of quitting? Can I be able to come back to the hospital to pursue a higher position?) Thanks in advance!

  5. Hello, I am seeking advice for a friend who unfortunately has waited until her last elligible year (year 6) and month (Dec) it seems to take her 1st PANRE. She seems to be under the impression that if she does not pass on this one attempt, she will have to return to PA school...therefore losing current position in an ICU since shell no longer have the -C. ( I don't believe our state of residence allows PAs to work without it). When researching the NCCPA and even this board I don't see any information about what would happen in a situation like this. I don't doubt that shell pass
  6. Hello! I feel blessed to be coming to you guys with such a problem, but it's been weighing on me and need advice from current PA-S's and PA-C's. I have been accepted to two schools: School A which is 20 minutes away from my current living space and School B which is closer to my parents, but still about an hour away. Schools A and B seem pretty comparable in terms of curriculum, program length (A: 27 mo versus B: 25 mo), PANCE pass rates (A: 97 versus B: 99), tuition (a difference of 3K), and employment rates after graduation. The main differences that I see are that school B is associate

  10. From the perspective of a PA-S who is on the cusp of completing the journey through the bowels of hell known as "Didactic Year" and going into the Clinical Phase, I've heard a lot of pros and cons on CAQ's. Basically, I started this topic with the motivation to find out if there are any major differences in benefits other than just sharpening your knowledge in a particular area, such as pay increases, responsibility/ duty increases, increase in the amount of procedures you can perform, hospital/ practice privileges, job availability, etc. Any and all input is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

  14. Do any PAs belong to a union? What would you say are the pros/cons? Is it worth it and what good do unions do for us... Thanks!
  15. Hey Guys! I am a PA student about to graduate this December. My husband is a Navy Doctor contemplating being stationed in Guam. I have no colleagues that have practiced internationally as a civilian PA and was curious how and who you would contact regarding jobs available in Guam for a PA.

  17. To say I'm frustrated is an understatement. I could really use any input. I recently passed my board and am eager to start working. The main attraction for choosing the PA profession was that "PAs can work anywhere." Wrong. Every employer asks for at least 1 year experience as a PA. I'm beyond frustrated - how can I get experience working as a PA if no one wants to hire a brand new grad with 0 years in practice? So, I tried to expand my net and searched for out of state work. Again, another frustration - they want to their specific state license - aka money for their own state license.

  19. I'm wondering if anyone knows the specific answer to this in regards to the pre-reqs for SJVC...I'm a previous applicant from Bakersfield who has been working to improve my grades for the last couple years, and I'm hoping to apply again to this program for next cycle...but I've been having difficulties getting a spot in our local CC's anatomy and physio class... I've taken one half here at our CC, and due to there only being a few sections offered, I resorted to taking the other half at another community college out of town during a summer session, just to try and get it done before the ap
  20. I was thinking of submitting my application now with a whole bunch of pending classes ( I graduate this fall) but currently I have a 4.0 spring semester GPA should I wait for the spring grades to be turned in and then submit my transcripts? or should i go ahead and submit it now and hope that I am in the first batch of applicants? (Submitting everything by May 25 vs. April 30) Would it be a big difference? please help.
