I just passed my PANCE and am a little confused about applying for the NPI. I've been in school out of state so I'm not sure how this goes in Califronia. 

 

Do we have to have a job already in order to apply for the NPI? I'm looking at the online application and it looks like they want a practice location address/phone number.

You can apply for the NPI without a job. From what I know, we just need to turn in the NPI audit that comes in the mail in order to fulfill the requirements for the state licensing. That's what I was told when I contacted the Ca PA board about licensing requirements a month ago or so.

So we don't do the NPI online application? Do we call to get it mailed?

 

Also, what do you put for EIN / Organization name, etc if you don't have a job in place yet?

You still full out the NPI online application. They will mail you an NPI audit. You send that in along with all other documentation such as healthcare certifications and etc. When I spoke with the PA board they told me to do the paper application versus the online application because you're still are going to have to mail everything in anyways.

 

Maybe someone can chime in as well?

      Hey!
       
      I'm a PA-S1 studying in Indianapolis at Butler University but I'm born and raised from Austin, Texas and would love to do a rotation back home (or at the very least in Texas). I'm looking for any and all preceptors that would have me for a rotation. I'm open to any specialty as long as I can make connections. Unfortunately, my program doesn't have any rotations available in Austin but we do have a clinical experience coordinator who can take of the agreements between the program and the preceptor. If you know anyone who possibly has a lead I would greatly appreciate the help!
       
      Regards,
      Johan

      What are some book/resources that you used to study for the PAEA end of rotation exams. Did you follow the blueprint exactly when studying? 
      Thanks!

      Our program is starting rotations soon and we are using standardized end of rotation exams though the PAEA.  What are the best books to use to prepare for these exams or any end of rotation exam? 
      Thanks in advance!
