The basic differences between a Nurse, Physician Assistant, & Doctor
First things first, you better know the difference between a Nurse Practitioner (NP), Physician Assistant (PA), and a Medical Doctor (MD) before applying to any school. I think we can all safely say we know a PA is different from MD, but do you know the distinctions between an NP and PA? This is one question you will hear A LOT as a PA and future PA, so here is the quick skinny on the details.
I hope this helped!! As a Physician Assistant, I will admit I am a little biased when I say “You should go to PA School!!” But its all in good fun! I hope you get the information you need to make your decisions, and the information you need to help you succeed.
