Has Colorado become more PA friendly than it used to?

Recommended Posts

There's an old post on here with this subject but years old and sort of seems CO wasn't too PA-friendly.  Have things changed over the past several years??   I had an interview in CO trying to gain a sense of it. 

thanks!

The Ultimate Guide to Getting Into Physician Assistant School, Fourth Edition

My husband is a PA student that graduates in Aug. We are from CO. We are hoping to get back there, but it seems CO is not PA friendly when it comes to new grads, and the pay from what we heard is on the lower end. Housing cost are ridiculous there up and down the Front Range.

Thanks.  I was hoping to find out if Colorado is PA friendly, in terms of working.. like PAs being respected, and the state laws being able to prescribe, and work autonomously, and those sorts of things.  I see the AAPA salary stats for wages so, I'm not really asking that here.  It seems PAs in CO aren't too active on this site at all but I really was hoping to find out these basics.

Hey! I find CO to be extremely PA friendly! The laws are great, pretty vague open to interpretation which works in our favor, I am autonomous in the ER, planning to start a side solo gig, and work wise as a PA is great honestly. I spent my first three years in Florida which I felt was unfriendly. No support, no overhead for us specifically, specialists would refuse to speak to us, etc. and annoying laws regulating us. I know you aren’t asking about pay but it is definitely low, I’m making significantly less here but I love Colorado and my lifestyle so for me it’s worth it.
