Hi all, I was wondering if anyone who is knowledgeable about such things could address a question regarding prescription rights & licensure. I'm planning to go to a 2 year physician's assistant program when I graduate in order to be able to a) address physical health issues that may impact mental health, and b) be able to prescribe under a doctor's supervision so I can do med management. I'm wondering if anyone might be able to share thoughts on when a good time for this would be. Obviously I need to do my internship year. But should I do a year's supervised work afterward in order to be license eligible, or should I go right back to school? If I went right back to school, would the PA license help in terms of getting someone to give me the year's supervision, or would it hinder because I would have been 2 years out of the field by then? Any thoughts would be most welcome. It appeals to me the most to go right into the schooling in order to stay in "school mode" as much as possible and also in order to get it over with ASAP... but I'm not sure if that could be a potentially damaging move. Thoughts would be most welcome!!!!
