How much of your license can you complete without a job?

Recommended Posts

Hi , I am graduating PA school in a few months. I know I can start the licensing process as soon as I pass the PANCE. Am I correct in assuming that I can complete all of the documents except the ones that have to be completed by where I get a job? Also, do you have to wait for your license to be issued before you can apply for a DEA number? All of this is confusing!

Thanks, 

Kim

All of it.

Start the licensing process BEFORE you take PANCE. Start with an NPI first.

Yes, you will need a state license before a DEA number, but that's simple and fast--just expensive.

Which school are you in, and where in Washington do you want to practice?

Hi, I am currently in my 6th of 8 clinical rotations . I go to University of St. Francis. I was born and raised in Washington and love it there. I plan on practicing around the seattle area. I went to University of Washington and was living there before I left for PA school. Thanks for the info!

Hi Rev, one more question. I am reading all the requirement for Wa and it says "hospital privileges" and "delegation agreement". Do both of those have to be sent in before they will issue your license? So basically, you need a job to get a license?? Am I correct in interpreting that?

Thanks Again, 

Kim
