    After many years of being an entrepreneur, working on start-ups and working in the business world, I've decided to make a big change.

    My wife has been fighting cancer for 18 months now, which promoted me to poor my life into research. I've become very interested in nutrition and integrative medicine which had me wondering how I could make a difference and start a new passion. I considered many avenues coming to the conclusion that I'm interested in becoming a PA or NP.

    I will start by diving into paramedic school and see where it leads me. I may apply for some PA programs or transition to Excelsiors RN program. I think I'll find out what I'm made of while pursuing my paramedic certification.

    For the first time in I don't know how long I really feel some passion and drive in my life. It is like a new lease in life.

    All the best my friend.

    It is understandable as to why you decided to change your career from working in the business world to becoming a Physician Assistant. Many of us decide to become doctors when we see our loved ones suffer.

    Just a small suggestion before enrolling in the college or university check for the eligibility criteria.
