lobsterlobster Posted March 8, 2013 Share Posted March 8, 2013 I am currently an engineer. I have made some progress in my career over but due to the bad economy my job market is poor now. I am a married mom with two kids ages 5 & 2 & one on the way. PA school appeals to me for the same reason engineering did- I like science. Also, it appeals to me because I would like to have more interaction with people during my day vs my current job where I do a lot of computer work. My questions are: 1. Are there any other engineers out there who made this same switch? How hard was the curriculum compared to engineering? 2. Other moms- How hard was PA school with kids? What kind of a schedule did you have? 3. Starting salary- My research shows that average salary for PAs is $80-120K, but what is the current starting salary? I live in WA for reference. Thanks in advance to anyone who can answer these. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
