Those of you who have interviews scheduled and feel brave enough to inquire, you should ask what they are doing to obtain new rotation sites to replace the ones they have lost, and also how they plan on stopping the ongoing loss of sites.

Just got an interview invite for January 13th! Does anyone have a recommendation on somewhere to stay?

 

I stayed at the Hyatt Place at the Forum - nice enough, very close, decent free breakfast, plus Starbucks :)

Has anyone heard from Renee recently? She has not been replying to my emails and her voice mail box is full. 

 

No, I emailed her last Friday and haven't gotten a response. I interviewed on October 28th and still haven't heard anything.

I interviewed on October 14th and have not heard anything yet. I haven't contacted Renee; I realized if they were ready to contact me, they have all my necessary contact information to do so.

I interviewed on October 14th as well and still have not heard anything. I have emailed multiple times and called. I know others in my interview group have not heard back either so there are a handful of us.

Still no response from Renee. I'm continuing my attempt to contact her.

Yikes. You all might want to try contacting the program director. Her name is Dr. Patch. Not responding to calls and emails is unacceptable.

I just called and left a message for Professor Patch. I still have not heard anything from my 10/14 interview.

      Hello, 
      In my pre-pa club a member asked a question about surgery for PA’s. The question was “Is it true that in order to assist in surgery you need to do an extra year of schooling after your PA program? Do this require you to pay more for school? Is this included in your PA schooling years or would you need to reapply for that surgical year?” 
      I thought it was an excellent set of questions, which I would like more answers for.

      Hey All,
      I didn't see a thread like this so I thought I would start one!  I just got a letter of rejection for the Post-Bacc Pre med program from UVA.  I applied October 1st.

      Hello, 
      I’m currently taking a gap year and preparing to apply for PA school when CASPA opens up in April 2020. I have a question regarding direct patient care hours. I’ve been working as a home-health CNA for the past 3 years, racking up 2000+ hours. With that being said, I’ve always had this anxiety eating away at me that home-health CNA’s are looked down upon in the terms of what they’re able to do as opposed to CNA’s working in SNF, hospitals, etc. 
      I’m often misrepresented as a home-health aide even though I have my CNA license. I’m always afraid this will hinder me when applying to PA programs simply because I’m viewed as more of a “maid” than a healthcare professional. However, I do more CNA tasks than what people assume. I have bed ridden clients I care for, I have clients that require lifts, and I have clients that are on ventilators. On the other hand, I do have my fair share of clients that are on respite care and my time is solely spent there as a comforter and person to talk to. 
       
      At a recent open house for a PA school I’m interested in, I voiced my concern for this and they assured me that it’s quality over quantity and as long as I was caring for someone it would suffice them. However, that’s just one of the many schools I’m interested in. With this being said, I also have some volunteer hours working as a CNA in a free clinic in my hometown where I’m doing more of the assessing and treating PA schools are looking for. However, majority of my hours are from my CNA job. 
       
      I chose home health because I knew the company I was going to work for was very flexible with hours and I needed that while I was in college. I’ve been with them for so long and grew so close to patients that I haven’t thought about leaving and going to a hospital or SNF to get more/different exposure. 
       
      I guess my question for anyone reading this is: would you consider my home health CNA job direct patient care?

      Hello, I am a high school senior that is interested in becoming a PA. I‘m currently in the process of applying to colleges and would like to know what major would be the best for me to pursue. For a little bit of background, I had originally planned on majoring in Biology because I read that it was the most common route taken for PA school( I’m also quite fascinated with biology itself). However, after researching again, I now plan on getting a BSN so that I'll have a backup job in the medical field just in case everything doesn't go as planned. I've read that majoring in Nursing unfortunately doesn't look good because PA schools will question the student's commitment to the PA profession. Personally, I am certain that I want to become a Physician Assistant but I also want to be able to secure a job in the medical field after receiving at least my bachelors. It also seems as though the medical-related jobs that I could get with a Biology degree wouldn't be very patient care related, which is something that I wish to have in a job. Overall, I feel as though I would prosper in a more health-centered major because it relates more to my passion.
      So ultimately, my questions are:
      1. Between majoring in Biology and Nursing, which is the more advantageous route to take in order to become a PA? 
      2. Is there any true disadvantage to having a BSN when it comes to applying to PA schools? 
      3. Are there any other majors that would be a better choice to study than Biology or Nursing?
      I would greatly appreciate it if anyone can get help me out!
