Not per se.

 

IF you are not coping with the PTSD. By over drinking, or drugs, and are not so irracible that coworkers will not work with you, IF You are not a danger to your patients, then the mere fact that you have PTSD will not stop you from being a fully unrestricted licensed PA.

 

in most states, you will have to answer a health and psychiatric question section in your license application. If you are in therapy, they MAY Request a quick note from your therapist stating hat there should be no problem.

 

The boards do not care what you have, as long as you are dealing with it, and it represents no possible endangerment to the public.

 

Most cases:unrestricted.

 

A few selected cases: full license with some administrative restrictions ( no working more that 40 hours per week, or more than 20 days a month, etc, needs to stay in therapy for "x" months and therapist needs to report yearly, etc.. But, if this happens, these " conditions" are documented in paperwork between you, the board and your SP. there is no annotation or marking affixed directly to the license itself...

 

In general, as long as you are not incapacitated socially or by medications, the mere fact you have PTSD, should not affect your ability to get a license.

 

Regardless of who you are, all of the brotherhood which has gone in harms way has, to varying degree, PTSD.

      Hello folks!
      I am curious as to what all of your experiences are w/ healthcare administration degrees (masters, doctorates, etc) for PAs.  I am planning to start an MHA or one of the DMSc degrees available to PAs within the next few years.  Now, I know that is not to say I really HAVE to have another degree to work my way into administration roles in the future, but I believe it will make me more competitive when I am up against MBAs, MHAs, MDs and RNs w/ advanced admin degrees.  I have been looking at some of the DMSc degrees that are popping up (Rocky Mountain, Lynchburg) and am interested how they compaire for admin roles vs the tried-and-true MHA or MBA.  Do any of you have any of these degrees, and how are you utilized?  Are you finding yourself competitive when seeking out admin roles?  Any recommendations of programs?  TIA!

      Hello all
       
      Im a PA 5 years out at a private out of network ortho surgery practice. Ive been with the practice for 3 years and have been praise with my performance. Its 7 docs and 5 PA's so we are carrying a larger work load. I'm on call one weekday a week and one weekend a month. I feel that my compensation is lacking since the weekend Im on call included surgical cases, ER consults and floor consults. Us PA;s literally do what ortho residents would do. We have the most autonomy of any position I have come across. I am currently getting paid 140k with the full weekend of call and I know I am getting underpaid. Dose anyone have any advice as to how to negotiate a better pay?
      TIA
