    why is the P.A. degree ranges from A.A. to B.S. to M.S.? different admission requirement?
    miami dade community college required a H.S. diploma and health care experience while other programs required something on the level of a Bachelor degree and also health care experience. Is this gonna matter in getting a job or both of the degrees are equal?

    do yourself a favor and go for the bs or ms programs. many states now require at least a bs. if you already have a bs then a cert or as program is ok, it doesn't have to be a bs in pa. to be the most competitive in the job market an ms is probably your best bet at this point as that is rapidly becoming the trend. good luck-e ( ms in pa)
    ps check over some similar threads on this forum earlier in the month.
