  1. I just recently decided to go to PA school and am trying to get PCE hours but also be employed. Right now, I'm looking into whether it would be better to be an MA or EMT-B, but it seems like getting the MA cert would be faster, with online classes and easier accessibility. After looking through some forums, many have said that being EMT-B would be better, but the classes for these take longer and have less availability (if you know a good online program please tell me). Would it be a good idea to just start the MA class (SFSU MA program that also has an externship which I am also worried
  2. I'll spare the forum my life story and cut right to the chase: Which patient care experience would allow an applicant to be more competitive: EMT-B or CNA/STNA? Or, does it not make a significant difference either way? I'm currently in the process of deciding which direction to go and am looking for some advice!

Obtaining an EMT-B certification is more expensive, but it could lead toward higher acuity experience in a hospital setting. I'm having an open mind to
  3. So all of the forums I've found online on this topic are 5+ years old, and since I frequent the PA forums here I figured maybe it was worth a shot asking. Does anyone have any experience or know someone who took an EMT course in Boston? Any feedback you can provide on pros/cons, how the teaching was structured, and what sort of clinical or ambulance experience you got from it? Since Northeastern took away their program, and the program at MIT is only available to MIT students/employees, I've pretty much narrowed it down to Boston EMS vs. Boston University. Although I don't want price
  4. Hi everyone, Nursing or EMT-B for training and getting hours in five years? I have five years from finishing my prerequisites now to gain substantial direct, hands-on patient contact health care experience before applying to PA schools. I say five years because some prerequisites "expire" after this duration by some schools' admissions information. Would it be worth the time, effort and money to spend a year completing an accelerated BSN program to only work as a nurse for 3-4 years? I am also considering being an EMT-B because I can get trained a lot quicker, but it seems nursing
  5. I will be applying to PA programs this fall and am currently taking prerequisite classes and working as a PCA. I have the opportunity to become EMT-B certified this summer. Unfortunately, that means I would have fewer healthcare experience hours as a result. In your opinion, which would make a better applicant: one with more hours as a PCA or one with combined PCA and EMT experience, but with fewer hours?
