  1. Hi, I am a third year pa student & graduate in May 2020 (3 more months!) I just got my first job offer, which also happens to be my dream job, and I’m very excited about it. I want to share the good news with family and friends on social media, but I want to do it tastefully and with proper etiquette. What is safe/not safe to say publicly?
  2. Hello everyone, Due to the fact that I am a new graduate ( as of August ) I felt the pressure to take one of the first jobs that I was offered. At the time it was the only offer on the table, and I felt overwhelming stress of securing employment. Although it was not my dream job, I signed the contract on Sept 30th. I am scheduled to start this new job on or around December 14th depending on when hospital credentialing goes through. Today, I received my dream job offer. It has better pay & better hours. I have been given an amazing opportunity as a new graduate and do not want to pass this offer up..... however, I have already signed the contract to the other job. So my question is, I am a wrong for backing out of my original job offer (which I have yet to start) & take my dream job? The contract I signed is a one year contract commitment. The wording in the contract states the following " Subject to Non-Physician Provider’s satisfaction of the Prerequisites set forth in Section 1, the term of this Agreement shall commence on December 14, 2016, or such other date as approved by Company (the “Effective Date”) and shall remain in full force and effect thereafter for an initial term of one (1) year (“Initial Term”) " There is no other date that is called "Effective Date" other than December 14th, 2016. However, the contract was signed on September 30th, 2016. Does anyone have an input on this? My thoughts are that I should be able to get out of the contract without penalty since I have yet to start the job. Appreciate all advice and input.
  3. I have written a blog post that may be of use to you. It describes, in detail, the steps I took to get credentialed/ready to work after graduating from PA school. Steps to Take After Graduating from PA School
  4. Home health gig combination of primary care visits, wellness visits, palliative care. must see 120 patients per month but no minimum required working days/ week Seeing minimum of 6 patients per day ( based on m-f schedule, 20 days/ month) pay is 95K - This seems really low to me, but can work as much as one wants I suppose and make near 200K so I'm told. on call once per month Friday- Monday, phone call only- This seems terrible to me. Probably a lot of med refills, random complaints, weekend basically gone. benefits. malpractice. 6 patients doesn't sound like a lot, but considering transit time, charting, etc. I'm thinking it would probably take a full 8+ hour work day making the base pay not really worth it. What does everyone think?
  5. I've been accepted to a school that is ranked 70th in the nation. This certainly isn't a top ranked school, but it's a good program (continuing accreditation, 97% PANCE pass rate, etc). How much importance is placed on the rank of your PA program in the hiring process, post-graduation? Thanks for your input!

  7. It's so frustrating to tell potential future employers that you may need to wait up to 5 months until gov Chris Christy gets off his bloated behind as the licensing process in NJ is slowww! Can you take a history, do the physical, write the note without signing it or making any orders in the interim? These are the same things that we do as students during clinical year. I went on the NJ state site, http://www.njconsumeraffairs.gov/pa/Pages/regulations.aspx, but it says nothing about it. I have some friends of mine whom were scribes before school and will be paid as scribes and will learn the software until they receive the license in the mail. 1. Does anyone know if this is an ideal option? 2. What kind of ways have you had your future employer utilize you until you are credentialed?
  8. 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?
