  1. I am a 1996 graduate of a PA program. I was a PA-C for 10 years and worked 8 of them. I had kids, got busy, but now want to get back to my first love. I realize I must retake the PANCE. Has anyone here on the forum gone through or is currently in the same situation? There is a plethora of info for first timers just graduating or recertifiers currently in practice. I haven’t practiced in 15 years. I do keep up with reading but haven’t logged CME’s in 10 years. To make matters worse I currently live in Arkansas which has a huge NP presence. Licensure is a series of hoops. You actually have to have your supervising physician go with you to Little Rock’s medical board and they ask your SP if he has seen you do various procedures. If he has not well, you are not able to perform those procedures. NP’s are licensed through nursing board not Medical board so they have a huge scope of practice. Anywho, anybody out there with advice? I am planning on taking an online prep then doing these qbank questions. Lots of help here on what to use to get ready for PANCE I’m just concerned my knowledge may be lacking due to the time out of practice. Appreciate it.
  2. I'm considering both nursing and pa school- but being a pa is more attractive to me for many reasons, including my interest and personality. However, i am almost 40 and have a toddler at home. I have a masters degree in non healthcare field, and am taking pre read now. Is PA school even an option for me?? Is travel required at RFU?
  3. I am starting a PA program in January. I have 2 kids, who will be 2 yrs old and 6 months old, at that point. My husband and I are deciding whether he should work or stay at home while I'm in the program. In his current job (for an organ procurement org) he works evenings. So that means we will need part time child care, but that he and I will virtually never see each other. The other option is for him to stay at home with the kids, not need childcare, get to actually see him some, but obviously that means living off of loans (i.e. more debt). Ive googled this topic and i've mostly seen posts about guys in PA school and wife stays home with kids. I;m worried if he is working we are both going to be burning the candle at both ends between work/school and caring for the children with our opposite schedules. do most people in the program with kids have a "stay at home" spouse? Is it realistic to get by living only on loans for the duration of the program? help!
  4. recent NEJM article briefly dissected by Mel Herbert, one of the deities in EM education: http://blog.hippoem.com/?utm_source=EM%3ARAP+Newsletter&utm_campaign=978b1d849b-2014-03-18_weekly&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_de71b4780c-978b1d849b-288759933 honestly, I kind of figured this as well. does it really matter if you get 3 liters of IV fluid through a central or peripheral line? apparently not. what really matters is early recognition, fluids, abx, and pressors if needed. fancy monitors are no better than common sense. score 1 for the rural ICUs with save to d/c rates similar to the academic tertiary care medical centers.

  6. Hi, I am planning to apply to PA program at MDC and wanted to know what the typical schedule for a day student is. I am a mom and I was a little bit worried to see in the application documents that a day student shift is from 8a-8p... Is this correct? What is a typical semester like? Thanks!
