New grad moving to NC from TX, help on licensing application

Recommended Posts

I am graduating 8/11/2017 and moving to North Carolina from Texas. 

Unfortunately my PA Program only has information in regards to licensing in Texas, so I was hoping I could get some info here. 

 

1. I have already filled out the NCMB app and printed my checklist, and I am currently working on completing that checklist but I noticed it doesn't provide info about:

  • Jurisprudence  exam (do you guys have to take that?)
  • NPI registration
  • DEA registration

-Any info on those items?

 

 

2. What's the expected timeline for processing the application/getting licensed ?

- Will it be necessary to obtain a temporary license?

 

 

Any information in regards to the North Carolina application process would be much appreciated! My program provided students with a very detailed checklist/survival guide with instructions/personal tips for the Texas Medical Board Application and I am hoping there is something similar out there for NC!

No temporary license available, but my license was processed super quick in 2015. I had everything turned in and all they were waiting for was my PANCE results. Had my license two days after PANCE results were sent in. I'm not sure what your question is about NPI and DEA- they are national and you will need to get them to practice. I can't remember if you need them prior to licensing- you should call the NCMB. I had to call them a couple times when licensing and they were very helpful. No jurisprudence exam when I got licensed.

Just an update (as of 9-1-2017) for anyone following this topic:

 

I started on my NCMB application on 4/28/2017 and got most documentation submitted within two weeks of that. They were very quick about processing these items on the checklist. 

I graduated PA school on 8/11/2017, took my PANCE on 8/23/2017, received my PANCE results from NCCPA on 8/31/2017 and on 9/1/2017 the NCMB finished reviewing my application. They have given their stamp of approval and will be issuing my license. 

Everything went smoothly and QUICKLY!

In regards to my initial posting - NCMB does NOT issue temporary licenses, and DEA/NPI licenses cannot be done until you have a medical board license.

Glad it was quick for you. I almost missed my credentialing deadline because they took two weeks to get my license back to me and another two weeks for DEA to clear.

      New grad dermatology offer in the Northern Virginia area. Solo MD practice with 4 PAs (1 is leaving and another is leaving in a few months). Only the MD has an MA who brings back pts, scribes and assists with procedures. No Mohs in office. PAs see approximately 15 pts per day at 30 minute intervals - bring pts back to rooms, turnover rooms, perform beta-hcgs without assistance. Location, providers and support staff are great - shadowed with the practice following interview. 
      Offered a 1-year contract for $48/hr, 36 hours/wk, work 8AM - 5 PM (1 hr for lunch flexing every other Friday), no weekends or holidays, no call. Paid bi-weekly. Compensation while training will be $25/hr for the first 4-weeks of employment, increasing to $30 thereafter (no longer than 12 weeks) with a retention bonus after 1-year to compensate for pay-cut during training period.
      Productivity bonus begins after 1-year of employment: annual bonus of 5% of the aggregate amount in excess of 3x calculated annual salary.
      PTO - 83.2 hours (2 weeks) covers vacation, sick leave, CME travel; increases to 3 weeks after 1-year
      Annual stipend - $1,000 covers licensure, CME (to include travel and lodging expenses), uniforms, dues, books.
      401k - dollar for dollar matching up to 4%
      Malpractice insurance - provided but no details written in the contract; verbally told that there is no tail coverage but did not seem to know if policy was claims made vs occurrence.
      No dental, health, vision. Currently covered under spouse's plan. 
      Restrictions: no moon-lighting, 2-year non-compete with other derm offices within a 20 mile radius.
       
      Offered Urgent Care position at $58/hr, ~32-36 hrs/wk to include two Fridays and one-two weekends a month. 2 months training at full pay. Non-training shifts will be from 2 PM -10 PM; working with another PA/NP in house at all times - can work solo after 1 year. Paid time and a half for holidays worked. No call. Salary growth of 3-6% annually plus RVU bonus.
      PTO - 84 hrs; plus 3 months maternity leave through disability
      CME $1500
      401K - 100% vested after 1 year, 3-6% match after 1 year
      Profit sharing - 1500 hours (not really sure what this means...need to do some research)
      Malpractice insurance - occurrence policy. No tail coverage.
      Health insurance provided.
      Licensure fees, membership dues covered.
       
      I like both practices and need some feedback. I like staying busy, doing procedures and developing relationships with patients. I do no like the UC hours to include shift time, weekends and holidays - spouse works 9AM-5PM and want to have more time together. Derm location is closer to home, less charting, predictable schedule. I want to renegotiate the derm offer to match the hourly compensation of the UC offer - hoping to get at least $53/hr, ask for 20% rather than 5% annual bonus with a goal stipend of $2500. Any tips of advice of any sort would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

      Hi, I am a third year pa student & graduate in May 2020 (3 more months!) I just got my first job offer, which also happens to be my dream job, and I’m very excited about it. I want to share the good news with family and friends on social media, but I want to do it tastefully and with proper etiquette. What is safe/not safe to say publicly?

      Looking for help brainstorming thoughtful questions in order to get application feedback - besides "how can I make my application stronger?". There is always room for improvement, just looking for the right questions to ask.

      Hi everyone,
      I am graduating from my program next month, and have an offer from a cardiology office in Lakeland, FL.  I have received the contract to review and would like some thoughts about the terms of this 1 year contract:
      salary - 90K for 1st year with the potential for incentive bonus
      benefits starting after 90 days of employment
      1-2 years of employment - 2 weeks PTO, 3-4 years of service = 3 weeks paid time off per year 4+ years of service = 4 weeks paid time off per year
      $1,500 CME allowance with an additional week off for CME 
      The downside: No tail coverage provided 
      12 month non-compete including a 12 mile radius from any of their offices (they have several), but I am under the understanding it is just related to other cardiology practices.
       
      Thoughts?

      Hi there! I am a new graduate that recently accepted a general surgery job from a local metro hospital. I will have the opportunity to perform a lot of procedures and with time a lot of autonomy. I am excited, but I am also aware of all that I don't know and still have a lot to learn. Is there any advice or textbooks any of you could give? I was a scrub tech for years before attending PA school, so the OR life is like home to me.
