  1. I recently graduated with a BA in Linguistics and I'm currently in the process of becoming a certified Spanish medical interpreter. I am intending to begin a surgical technology program within the next year or two. After this program I, obviously, want to work as a surgical technologist for a little while. Ultimately, I would like to be a surgical PA. The surgical technology program I'm considering is at a technical school here in Texas that is accredited by the CAAHEP and certified by the NBSTSA. I know most people probably typically get a BS that's strong in sciences and mathematics, but wou
  2. I have received a bachelor's degree in PA students and am currently practicing. I am looking for advice on what I should get my masters in. Was thinking health administration. Thoughts?
  3. Hi everyone, I am having a bit of a dilemma! I am currently a student at a small community college in Maine. I started in 2015 and got my Associate in Applied Science in Medical Assisting a year ago this past May. I became certified through the AAMA and started working right away. I worked as a float in rheumatology, neurology, family practice, and OMT specialty. All very beneficial to gaining the knowledge I now have. I initially got my MA degree so I could start taking classes towards my bachelors degree and I would also have a job that would get my patient contact hours that I needed t
  4. Hello everyone, I was hoping someone could shed some light on my situation. I am currently a paramedic, and have over 10,000 HCE. I was working as a firefighter recruit in the academy and unfortunately got injured twice. I was forced to resign and started working as a paramedic again. I love medicine and I have been working on my undergrad for the past 1.5 years. Currently a senior and all of my prereqs are finished (sgpa 3.7). I have an upward trend in my GPA, which was initially terrible (had bad GPA about 8 years ago when I was going through family issues and wasn't focused in school).
  5. Hey guys, So I'm a military wife and with that being said I've lived in 4 different states in the past 4 years its HARD to keep getting transffered around with schools. Right now I have 90+ credits but NO degree also a 3.6 GPA I am one credit away from getting my AA transfer degree from a community college, which I may just take 1 class online, just to have something! ( residency at school holding me back) I am looking for regionally acrreditied schools that offer a FULLY online bachelor's degree! PS: I have already taken most of my science except for ORGO in classes at bri
  6. Hi Everyone! I was wondering if anyone had thoughts about this: I'm currently pursuing an undergrad degree. Actually, I'm transferring to a school to finish my degree and I'm trying to figure out what I should major in. I would like to eventually become a PA but some of the schools I'm considering don't have pre-professional programs. I'm particularly interested in Loyola University Chicago. I've read that sometimes it's even more desirable to get a degree thats not a pre-professsional one, because it shows you have interests and strengths in other disciplines that can still be used in a
  7. I was thinking of possibly going into a BS program for PA then once I have been certified and worked for a bit going and getting my MS. Would that be okay or should I just go the traditional getting my BS then applying to the MS program. I would be getting my BS in either Nutrition or doing one of those majors where I kinda make my own way and guide myself with what I want to do. I'm a freshman in college but am just part-time for my freshman year. If I do go through the first route (BS then working then MS) how would I go about getting my MS? Like, what kind of program would I do if the B
  8. I am finishing up my sophomore year and have switched my major a couple of times. I started in Chemical Engineering, switched to Biochem for a semester, and am now happily majoring in Nutrition. I finally quit worrying about "impressing" PA schools by forcing myself to major in something I did not like and decided to actually spend my undergrad learning topics that I will enjoy and that will help me be a better PA. Unfortunately, with all the switching, I have "wasted" some credit hours on some engineering and math classes that are no longer required for my new major of Nutrition. I could
  9. I have a question regarding an MMS PA Program and a MPAS PA program. Both of masters level, but are they both equivalent? I was wondering if one has any restrictions and/or more difficultly finding an employer proceeding graduation. Any information would be gratefully appreciated.
  10. I will be starting PA school in August and will be getting a bachelor's degree. I would like to get my Master's degree in the future and keep seeing little rumors of PA's needing Master's in the future. Either way I think it's a good thing to have one just to be competitive. My question is, does it really matter what the Master's degree is in? Is it better to have a Master's in PA Studies or can I get it in Health Administration or Business etc?
  11. Has anyone been accepted to the Nova programs with an online bachelors degree? If so how does the admissions board feel about online programs? I'm currently working on an online degree from UF and I'm not sure if it's the best course of action to get into PA school. Any advice would be big help! Thanks
