  1. I have created a Cardiology Study Guide that exactly follows the PANCE Blueprint of Cardiology Study Disease processes, and Cardio Drugs ... I think it is a great study tool and I am glad to share it with you. Also, It's fine for you to pass it along and share it with anyone that it might help I have tried to post it with this message- unfortunately, it exceeds the attachment size limitation offered by this forum, so I'm unable to attach the document here directly, .. if you will email me, I will be happy to forward it to you. Feel free to email me at chasholloway1211@yahoo.com it's in a WORD document format, and I have reduced the size of the viewing pages ... all you need to do is adjust and increase the "Percentage" viewing size of the document in order to read the pages ... I hope that you find the information helpful. (btw, some people have emailed me and asked me if I am charging for my notes ... definitely not ... I'm just a regular PA. I wrote up some notes, and thought I would share them.)
  2. My program is 27 months so that's what I've been using to calculate time off work, etc. However, I am realizing that with having to pass the PANCE and get licensed before working, it may be the case that I'm looking at a few more months of being unemployed. If I take the PANCE quickly after graduation and pass the first time (I hope!), how long would I be out of work after graduation? I hear that many PAs get job offers during their rotations. Does that mean that you can start training right after graduation, or do these offers only start when everything is done. Thanks! I know I'm really thinking ahead here (don't start school until summer), but I just want to be adequately prepared!
  3. Hello I'm finishing up my last credits so I can transfer to Drexel U for their PA program. I wanted to know if anyone went there? How long did you have to wait for a interview? How long did you wait before you got accepted? Does everyone get a interview? And if your applying only with a associate degree are you still looked at as competitive vs people who have their bachelor degree? I'm already a transfer student from NYC to Pennsylvania... I want to be a cardiothoracic PA in surgery. Any advice would be helpful..
  4. Here are the details... Ortho spine. Job is with a private practice ortho group (20 docs) about 45 minutes from major midwest city. Base salary: $74,000 Health/Dental/Vision: Eligible after 90 days. High deductible plan ($3,300), paying about $35 out of pocket per pay (individual plan) 401k & Profit Sharing: 1 year waiting period... Will match 100% up to 3%, and 50% match on the next 2% Life Insurance: $20,000 term and accidental CME: $1500 and 5 days Vacation: 2 weeks plus 8-9 major holidays (no other personal sick days were included in info packet) Malpractice with tail/Licensing/DEA: Covered by employer Bonus: The specifics on paper are confusing, but during conversation the physician made a comment that it could be about $4000 extra a year (l was sort of expecting the "bonus" to make up for the low salary, so this was definitely a shock.) They are willing to give me 2 chances to pass my certification exam and are also willing to employ me (if needed) during the 3 month period as an athletic trainer (I've been certified for 10 years) at a rate of $25 an hour... Obviously if I pass my test on the first try this wouldn't make a difference. Odds and ends: Physician takes 10+ weeks of vacation a year and it was discussed that I would end up having a lot of that time off as well without having to use vacation days. I know that there will be a lot of 50-60 hour weeks because I did an elective rotation with this physician, but physician said those hours will equal out with the extra time off and days off here and there if we've been hitting it really hard. The doc knows I have another offer at $84,000, but still came in 10g's lower. The other offer is sports medicine, but I've had several people to tell me to RUN in the other direction from that group. I was really just hoping to use the sports med offer as a negotiating tool. I'm supposed to just call the doc over the weekend if I have any questions or if I want to negotiate. Any thoughts, suggestions, ways to approach a higher salary would be appreciated. I know the value in this position would be the good relationship I've had with the doc since my rotation, plus I know they're willing to train me... But I also know I can't work for pennies. THANKS!
  5. We have a 86 yo demented female with probable urosepsis, Na 165, lactate 1, ph 7.20, bicarb 11 down from 16 yesterday. Blood gasses WNL. Bicarb drip is my first thought but at what rate and do I take any special precautions for the Na? Thanks
