    [–] What NSFW things have you seen at work? winning-colors 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Pikachu’s chode sounds like an impressive member.

    [–] Did you enjoy your PCE? winning-colors 1 points ago in prephysicianassistant

    I work closely with a PTA. The best pro I’ve heard is you get a lot of time with patients. The cons, so far, have been so much charting even if you barely saw the patient and too much responsibility for the pay. I definitely don’t want to switch. If you don’t mind, why did you leave PTA?

    [–] Did you enjoy your PCE? winning-colors 6 points ago in prephysicianassistant

    I work as Physical Therapy tech full time. For the most part I enjoy it. I am fortunate to work with PTs who treat me well and are great teachers. Honestly if PA doesn’t work out for me I would definitely consider Physical Therapy Assistant.

    I don’t know what a Pugalier is but I need to see it

    [–] What an amazing father winning-colors 102 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago) in HumansBeingBros

    Found it further down in the thread thanks to a helpful bot.

    Edit: I tried to link but it wouldn’t work. The campaign is still open. Look at the bot comment with “direct link to tweet” and you’ll find the Gofundme.

    [–] Prerequisite Woes winning-colors 7 points ago in prephysicianassistant

    It sucks to have to retake courses. I get it. It’s time consuming and expensive. My coursework expired and I have been retaking pre reqs because like others said they won’t even look at your application without current accepted coursework. Maybe look into RN to NP accelerated if PA requires you to retake too many courses.

    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. winning-colors 32 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Same here. I get inappropriate/sexual comments from men in their 50s most often. I’m a physical therapy tech so I have to get pretty close to patients to set them up on modalities.

    I also had a mid 50s woman ask me if I was pregnant last week. I am not pregnant nor am I overweight. She said “I wanted to ask so I didn’t offend you because I thought you were”. So there’s that too.

    [–] PCE jobs for someone with no experience? winning-colors 1 points ago in prephysicianassistant

    I am a Physical Therapy tech. All my training was on the job. I work full time but depending on the clinic I’m sure they have part time techs.

    [–] PA programs vs Direct-Entry MNS programs? winning-colors 2 points ago in prephysicianassistant

    CNA is a great way to get PCE. Depending on the hospital you can also work as an ER tech with a CNA license. PA programs aren’t going to accept you without experience though. On the other hand, maybe NP is right for you, maybe it’s not. You’re only a sophomore, you’ve got a lot of time. I’d also suggest shadowing both practitioners in a variety of settings to get a good idea of what they do. You can never have enough experience. You don’t want to get stuck on a track you’re unhappy with. Take your time.

    ETA: I am a post bacc and will be applying for the second time this upcoming cycle. My weaknesses were low PCE and my interview. I work full time as a PT Tech and honestly I love it. Patient care is really rewarding even if I do a bit of scut work.

    [–] What's something that seems obvious within your profession, but the general public seems to misunderstand? winning-colors 8 points ago in AskReddit

    You are doing the lord’s work, my friend. Thank you for being a CNA. I love working in medicine and my job but I don’t have the patience to do what you do. Y’all deserve way more compensation and respect 💚

    [–] Any teens on Reddit that care about vaccines? winning-colors 23 points ago in vaxxhappened

    Your local health department will vaccinate you without insurance.

    [–] List of Other Science classes winning-colors 2 points ago in prephysicianassistant

    Mine counts toward the 6 hour psychology pre req requirement at a program I’m applying to.

    [–] What can you not believe we still have to deal with in 2019? winning-colors 14 points ago in AskReddit

    Part of the reason multi drug resistant TB has emerged is due to non compliance with treatment. Unfortunately a lot of patients with TB come from the most vulnerable communities. Its hard to stick to an antibiotic regimen when you’re homeless.

    I love that she’s wearing a patriots hat too

    [–] What are the biggest red flags you should look out for when you start a new job? winning-colors 3 points ago in AskReddit

    Healthcare is a good fit for some people and a terrible fit for others. I'm a PT tech and I love it. Of course some patients drive me crazy but it's rewarding to see people get better. I learn a lot too.

    EMS can be very draining. Definitely do your research. See if there are shadowing opportunities or at least sit down and talk to EMTs or medics.
