The ARC-PA website said these are the issues - are there any current students on here that can comment?

 

Report due for standards related to

  • the sponsoring institution supporting the program in securing sufficient clinical sites and preceptors
  • the program director being knowledgeable about the accreditation process
  • instructional objectives in didactic and clinical courses that guide student acquisition of required competencies,
  • the curriculum including instruction on the treatment of substance abuse and the principles of violence identification and prevention,
  • supervised clinical practice experiences (SCPEs) in preventive, emergent, acute and chronic patient encounters that enable students to meet program expectations and acquire the competencies needed for entry into clinical PA practice,
  • SCPEs with patients seeking medical care across the life span, women’s health, care for conditions requiring surgical management and care for behavioral and mental health conditions,
  • SCPEs occurring with physicians and PAs teamed with physicians specialty board certified in their area of instruction, SCPEs with preceptors practicing in pediatrics, documenting
  • effective processes for the initial and ongoing evaluation of all sites and preceptors used for SCPEs
  • documenting that each clinical site provides the students access to physical facilities, patient populations and supervision necessary to fulfill program expectations of the clinical experiences.

All of the above issues are very much present and very much an issue. Not much has changed. I really hope they do get accrediated because they professors are very nice and care about their jobs, but it is a gamble.

Has anyone had any issues submitting the $50 fee to Monmouth? I tried using the link provided on CASPA but it says my application is not found even though I submitted. Is there a lag time between submitting and being able to pay the fee to Monmouth?

Also- anyone had to submit AP scores through College Board directly to Monmouth? Never had to do that before since I have the credits on my transcript. And since I took my AP exams >4 years ago they are archived and need a special request through College Board to get sent.

You're saying they have bad issues and they are not changing? That's not good.

Any idea on how they did on the PANCE? They don't have their scores posted. Coupled with the accreditation problems above it is making me very nervous to apply.

I think most grads have passed the PANCE! But to be honest I wouldn't recommend applying. Hopefully you'll be accepted to a different program, so then problem solved. If not then you're stuck in limbo deciding to take a chance going to a program that may lose accreditation while you're there. I know the next visit is next fall so I'll be good to graduate next spring, but its a tough situation for anyone looking to apply now. Best of luck!

      Hi, everyone!
      What are your thoughts on applying to programs with a ARC-PA probationary accreditation status (i.e., "Accreditation-Probation")?
      I'm a first-time applicant, and a couple schools that I have my eye on currently have probationary statuses (Johnson & Wales University; Monmouth University). I was wondering if it's worth applying to said schools, especially to ones that have had a probationary status for more than two years. 
      Although these schools are still considered accredited, is it safe to apply to & then attend these schools? Do these schools prepare students to become competent & trustworthy healthcare professionals? Are these schools worth the debt? My concern is enrolling in a school with probationary accreditation and graduating as a sub par PA-C, but those are just my uncertain sentiments at the moment. 
      Moreover, I've read that applying to these schools may be advantageous to some who aren't considered "strong applicants" (e.g., average grades/GRE). On the other hand, I've seen "strong applicants" display their admiration & loyalty to these schools here on PA Forum. I'm confused! Let's open up the discussion!

      Monday to Friday 9-5. No weekends.
      But I’ve shadowed on Monday and they usually stay late. When the doctor is there the work seems very secretarial. Calling about results a lot of the time from what I’ve seen. There’s a PA there that’s been there for 3 years and even she seems to spend most of the time at the computer. But I will get to do joint injections and the standard pain management stuff.
      Benefits: 80k + 10k signing bonus (repaid in full if I leave within two years)
      Insurances Full
      Licensing, DEA, and credentialing; Full
      $750 CME
      2 weeks paid for vacation and sick leave
      1 week paid for CME
      Malpractice Covered with No tail (but tail seems to be required) 2 Year, 15 mile non-compete (they have 3 offices)
      Oh and they want me to start as an MA at $16/hr while my licensing is going through.
      Pretty bad huh?

      I didn't notice a forum for this program, so I thought I would try to start one.
