If you're working to choose your target PA programs wisely, is accreditation status part of your consideration?

If so — do you know what a continued, provisional, or probationary status means? Are you *sure* you know?

Accreditation status is THE most commonly misunderstood program aspect among future PAs.

If you hope to understand how accreditation might impact your program search, it's time to simplify this topic and get clear on how it might (or might not) affect your future.

Advocating for the PA profession may sound like something best left to the big organizations, but championing the PA profession is quite simple.

You don't even have to be a PA yet to do it. And it doesn't take much, if any, extra time to do.

Here are four simple ways that you can help to promote the profession that you love.

We recently covered the issue of burnout among practicing PAs.

But, the stress and pressure of becoming a PA don't wait to kick in until after the PANCE.

Understanding what to expect with each step along the way is the best strategy for managing your time and your sanity as you work towards your ultimate goal.
