Yeah, more than likely you spoke to the wrong nurse on the wrong day! Definitely speak to as many nurses as possible, don't let one bad apple change your mind about things! That is what I did. I certainly got more positives than negatives. PA programs are not for me, I just don't want to spend that much more time in school right now. Very happy to be completing this program in one year, and getting to work thereafter. I will pursue grad school later if I desire. Time is just not my friend right now - but very happy nonetheless in my plan. But if you can afford to invest the time and determined you could be happy doing PA, by all means go for it!
This should be my first weekend of significant packing. I expect to see some progress by Sunday night. Cross your fingers!
The accelerated program always starts in June, so the next entering class is Summer 2012. The next deadline (assuming everything is the same) should be Nov. 1, 2011. Application is made available online in early Sept.
