Are these still considered accredited programs?

 

 

Yes they are accredited but only available for those who are already certified PAs that are seeking to upgrade thier current degree (i.e. AS or BS to MS) either for personal reasons or they are moving to a state that requires one or because its a job requirement

University of North Dakota is not for PA-C. It is for allied health professionals (RN, RRT, Chiro, etc.) that have had 3 years or more clinical experience that are wanting to become a PA-C.

Thanks for posting this! During my research over the past seven months or so I've taken a liking to A.T. Still and Nova Southeastern. Nova has a few programs for the Experienced Healthcare Professional:

[h=3][/h][h=4][/h][h=3][/h][h=4]M.H.Sc* - http://www.nova.edu/chcs/healthsciences/mhs/index.html[/h][h=4]Dual MHS/DHS - http://www.nova.edu/chcs/healthsciences/mhs_dhs/index.html[/h][h=4]D.H.Sc. to Ph.D. Path - http://www.nova.edu/chcs/healthsciences/phd/dhs_phd.html[/h]Ph.D.- http://www.nova.edu/chcs/healthsciences/phd/index.html

 

 

 

*Penn College also has a partnership (or something like that) allowing their BSPA students to have advanced standing in the MHSc program.

I am currently enrolled in University of North Dakota's PA Program.... Yes it is a distant learning program half of the time and on campus the other half of the time, but it is a program intended for those seeking to become a PA-C, not current certified PA-C's looking to obtain their masters degree.

Hope this helps
