  • Semper Gumby!

    If there’s one thing most of us learned in our post-graduate training it was “semper Gumby” (translation: always flexible). And I have learned that lesson in my hunt for my first PA job. My last post I boasted on landing a great job serving the underserved but in the words of a good friend, “It seems like the more the organization wants ...

  • IMPACT 2013

  • In the Footsteps of Pioneers

    A thought struck me this week as I stood at the steps of the U.S. Capitol building. It hit me again as I ran past the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial. I am young. I don't mean young as in ''young, up-and-coming PA'' or, ''Boy, you look way too young to be holding that scalpel.'' I mean that I realized my life has been just a ...

  • Always a Student

    Since graduation, I've had plenty of reminders - good and bad - that I am no longer a student. There is the ''PA-C'' behind my name and my shiny new state license. A paycheck arrives every two weeks like an airplane dropping supplies on a desert island. And, of course, I now hold myself to an even higher professional standard. While these ...

  • Where the Need Is Greatest

    So now that the basic tenets of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act are moving forward, who is going to provide all that primary care? A lot of people are counting on you to do it. But recent studies and surveys show that NPs and PAs are shifting to specialties and subspecialties at a fast clip. In response, thought leaders and family ...

  • NPs & PAs Are Talking – June 18, 2012

    On Facebook this week, we shared some photos from the AAPA IMPACT 2012 conference in Toronto. Our fans loved to ''meet'' NP &PA Student Blog blogger Caroline Pilgrim, a first-time AAPA conference attendee. Caroline wrote about her experience at the conference and shared some of her own great photos in her blog post this week. Did you ...

    Last month, after spending 12 hours in a compact car driving north to Toronto, Ontario, I attended the AAPA annual conference with 11 of my classmates. (I hope you enjoy the photos depicting this experience!) The conference was filled with highlights such as meeting the delightful editors of ADVANCE for NPs & PAs, Michelle and Jennifer, and ...
