Why is it that some PA's feel AAPA or NCCPA do not support PA's??

I feeling like they worry too much about assistant/associate, instead of pushing parity with NPs. We lag behind in independent practice, compact licensure, and doctoral degree programs.



I feel for NCCPA they are an unnecessary burden financially and once passing the PANCE that should be it. This recertification process is a money grab. AAPA I feel does try to help PAs


I agree 100%. I received a notice from NCCPA that I haven't logged in my CME for the year yet. First of all I know because I do it all at once, second I think they are just wanting to keep tabs on us without saying as much

Because they dropped the ball when NPs were pushing for full autonomy. Hospitals and private practices are picking up on the less paperwork and supervisor requirements which leads to PAs losing out on the jobs which they are well qualified for.
Some people have already noticed this at VAs, they are preferentially hiring more NPs over PAs for this reason alone
We essentially got screwed regardless of what our opinions are on supervision requirements.

I have been working as a marketing manager at a tech startup for 5 years and decided it’s time for me to see how other companies are working. I accepted a new job offer (40% salary increase) but the start up is really struggling to find someone to organize their main events. This would only take me max 5hrs/week. I decided to freelance for them as I can use the extra. How much does a campaign/event marketing manager charge per hr. as a freelancer? What is the norm for setting rates?

Hello all,

I'm a PA in the PNW working for a private group staffing ED's in several hospitals. Recently the group has asked the PA's to take on a couple new roles (triaging and rapid track from triage i.e. straightforward ESI 4, 5). With these changes the PA's are considering asking for increased pay in the form of an addition of a COLA (cost of living adjustment) to our normal salary. Was wondering if any other PA's in the ED have these in their contracts and at what rate.
