Are You Looking, Laid Off or Happy Where You Are?

Published October 21, 2011 1:49 PM by Michelle Perron

At the start of 2011, we published an article describing the job outlook for NPs and PAs this year. Based on our research and interviews with workforce experts, we crafted a headline for that article using the term "changing landscape," and our cover image depicted an NP or PA partially protected by an umbrella. The expectation was that 2011 would be a little stormy, but that it would definitely feature some bright spots.

So, did our prediction come true for you? We'd like to find out. The editorial team is gathering information now about the job outlook for 2012. In addition to making a few forecasts, our article will share personal stories about NPs and PAs who experienced job change (good and bad) in 2011. Specifically, we'd like to hear from NPs and PAs in four categories: laid off in 2011; new grads seeking that first job; happy and not looking; and NPs and PAs who employ NPs and PAs.

We invite you to share your stories by posting here or by emailing me at
