  2. 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.

  7. 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. I am nervous about practicing overseas, but have no other option if my husband will be stationed there. I would love any information or contacts you may know of that I can get in touch with who have or are curently practicing in Guam or Internationally. Any feedback on experiences would be greatly appreciated. This will be my first job out of school, which is another reason I am nervous

  9. 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. How can I afford that license if I'm trying to look for work to pay off my student loans but no one wants to hire someone with no experience? Money is down to the last wire and I've applied to many many places that I can't even keep count of how many CVs I've submitted. Not to mention the frustration of creating a new profile, password, individual cover letters. All I can think of is to apply to a residency program in order to get "experience and training." Any inout would be appreciated.

  11. 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 application cycle... I know some schools don't accept this without permission, but I was wondering if anyone knew if this was acceptable for the pre-req requirements at San Joaquin.. if that's the case, I'm so afraid that it will take me forever to get into the other half of the A&P here in Bakersfield...I'm having trouble trying to take the complete one year series in succession... Thanks in advance to anyone who knows anything.
  12. 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.
