New to Forum.

4 yrs 0351 USMC 2/2 Golf Co

1 yr at the Greenville SC VA CBOC - Mental Health Service line

Currently at Naval Station Great Lakes as the most feared civilian on base, I'm a SARC..

 

36 yrs old and after talking with a PA from the USPHS have decided that SW is a non-starter for me and am ready to finish my pre-reqs and get into PA School in Illinois or Ohio as my family may make a move to Columbus.

If anyone needs help with a Federal Resume or navigating Voc Rehab, feel free to contact me. I'm proud to say that I've helped many people receive jobs or their Voc Rehab entitlements and would be willing to help anyone who's willing to put in the work. I have successfully been employed in the federal government for 2 yrs now and also utilized my Voc Rehab, sadly not for the right degree, but we all learn.

I'm also looking for a mentor who's working as a PA-C in Psychiatry or as a Hospitalist or ENT.

HM1(FMF) here, not a PA at the moment, here to find out if that path is possible. Interested in the IPAP program but will need an age waiver. Currently working as an RN with my BSN. I knew I wanted to continue my education but was trying to decide between NP and PA. I no longer have any doubts. I want to be a PA, and really hope I can make that happen.

Air Force here, 13 years active duty, 1 year ANG

5 years Security Forces - Malmstrom AFB, MT

9 years as a medic, almost 4 of those as an IDMT - Wright-Patterson, OH, Charleston, SC, and Vandenberg, CA.

Knocking out prereqs at University of Central Florida and submitting to CASPA early August with a couple of pending classes in the fall. Hoping the late end to the summer semester doesn't hurt too much. 

Good luck everyone!

Update: accepted and starting May 2018!
