The class of 2021 officially finished their second semester today! They had to transition to online classes part of the way through the semester, but it will take a lot more than that to keep this crew away from achieving their dreams of becoming PAs!

Greetings PA Educators and PA Organization Members!

As PAs are on the front lines of the COVID19 pandemic, professional advocacy is more important than ever for PAs and PA Students. We request your program’s or organization’s support on the petition asking President Trump and his administration to grant Full Practice Authority to all PAs in Federal jurisdictions. Current state and federal administrative barriers prevent PAs from practicing to the full extent of our education, training, knowledge, and experience.

Many state governors have issued temporary emergency declarations lifting these barriers as a means of increasing the number of health care professionals able to help combat COVID-19. Unfortunately the Federal Service PAs, the VA specifically, have been left behind. Now is the time for us to show our support for those that provide care to our Veterans. By signing the petition (SIGN THE PETITION), you will not only support the Federal PAs but you will be driving the change towards the modernization of PA practice!

We ask you to share this with your entire program or organization. We understand the terms “full practice authority” and "independent" in the petition can be confusing. The wording of this petition was vetted with high-ranking PAs within the VA and timed to coincide with AAPA's letter to Secretary Wilke. The understanding of Optimal Team Practice (OTP) is, at best, confined to our profession. Numerous surveys have indicated even many PAs don't know what it is, so full practice authority (FPA) is used in this petition. FPA is OTP.

There is no intention to change the fundamental relationship between PA and physician, but to remove the administrative barriers that repeatedly interrupt and slow down patient care. This petition is simply attempting to level the playing field for PAs to be as marketable as our APP counterparts.

If we can get over 100,000 signatures by MAY 4th, 2020, the White House must give a formal review and response. We can easily reach this signature goal if everyone signs and gets 10+ family members, friends, and/or colleagues to sign.



Please SIGN THE PETITION. Email verification is required for signatures to count (you will receive a confirmation at your email from whitehouse.gov), so this is a two-step process.

Please also consider posting the petition on your social media platforms and share with your friends, families, and colleagues for their support. Repost with hashtag #PAsAreTheSolution to keep the petition trending!

I am happy to answer any questions you may have. Email me here and we can arrange a conversation.

Thank you in advance for your support!

‘Twas the week before finals and all through the PA building
Not a student was starving, they had ham and turkey
As they filled all their plates, they turned with a smile
And thanked the faculty and staff for going the extra mile
What great students we have, they are such a delight
We wish them all well and some sleep for tonight! ❤️

A potluck meal was shared by the PA students, faculty and staff. We love being a family! ❤️

We are deeply concerned that the leaders of Hardin-Simmons University have not cast a vision or made firm commitments about HSU’s future.
