Physician Assistant Graduation

Graduation PA School

It finally happened!  I graduated from PA school!  Looking back it feels like it went by so fast, but it didn’t always feel fast in the moment.

I take my boards (the PANCE) on Saturday and, as soon as I get my license from the state, I will begin work at a rural medicine clinic (more about that in a later post).

To sum up the last two years (or 26 months) I will say this:  It was hard. I would do it again in a heartbeat.

The amount of material I have learned is still unbelievable.  Sometimes I think “how did I know that?”  It really does all start to click at some point.  Fortunately, I have many more years (God willing) to learn even more and to become an even better clinician.

I love the career I’ve chosen and I can’t wait to get started.

I couldn’t have done any of this without the love, prayers and support from so many.

What a ride.

  1. Hey Sara came across your blog on Pinterest! My husband has just recently applied to PA so I’ve loved reading your experiences! My husband applied to about 10 schools, just wondering is that about average? We didn’t know how many to apply for but that seemed to fit out budget. Do you have any advice on this? Thanks!

    • Hi Meghan! I think a lot of students do apply to multiple schools. It is a very competitive process, so that increases your odds of acceptance. Personally, I only applied to one school. I knew where I wanted to go and we also were on a budget. I think 10 is plenty. Good luck to you both!
