The Good Stuff:
- Preference is given to Nebraska residents
- MPH dual degree program - A 40 month program that incorporates a Master's of Public Health degree in with the PA studies
- Interservice Physician Assistant Program (IPAP) - The University of Nebraska is affiliated with the US Army to help active duty soldiers become PAs. This looks like a pretty cool program, and the tuition is $0, so that's helpful!
- Bridge program for PAs with a Bachelor's degree who would like a Master's - There's no travel, you get CME credit, and can take anywhere from 5 semesters to 5 years to complete the program. A great option if state regulations change to require a Master's or a practicing PA moves to a different state.
