CandidatesPhysician Assistant

Anna is a PA student from Texas. She’s also a mother of two boys, both under 10 years old. For three years, she applied to PA programs before finally getting accepted to a PA school in San Antonio, almost three hours away from her home. “I knew it would be hard,” she says, “but I could not lose this opportunity. I was one of the 45 students accepted out of 1,800 applicants, and I needed to figure out how to make it work.” Anna has a great support system through her husband and her mother. They take care of the kids during the week, she reconnects on the weekends. “If I were to give advice to future PA school students with children,” she says, “I would say stay focused on your main goal and know why you are doing this.” For Anna’s story, click here.
