A PA training question

  1. I'm afraid to post this. I'd rather not go find a new board....or get banned.

    Please don't start the debate thing again. All I want to know is why there are no PA programs in the regular universities? All the schools having nursing programs with either a final ADN, BSN, or MSN. I have only found one PA program and it looks like a for profit school that only trains PA's.

    Anyone know the answer?

    Here's a list of accredited US PA programs. While many of them are health science centers/medical shools, the vast majority do more than train PA's.

    You are right, they are not as common as Nursing Programs. Most PA programs are becoming MS option only. A good forum for PA stuff is this:
