prncess23 Posted June 4, 2011 Share Posted June 4, 2011 Hello everyone, I want to be a pa. I am looking at San joaquin valley college, beacuse im already going there for my Medical assistant certifcate so i can get a job and get the reuqired 2000 hours needed to apply to PA school. Anyway, they have a certificate program but a masters is optional through another uni...(not sure how that will work or the time). I was told that you can get a job with either a certificate or a master's (dont know of any that have Associates), but that things are moving in a direction where certificates will be obsolete and you wont be able to work if you have a cert and therefore have to get a master's? Im assuming master;s programs will be harder to get in than certificates... is it really worth it? I want to get in, do my stuff, get out and work. i cant wait to become a PA and help people.
