ABSTRACT New Jersey was the next to the last state to recognize physician assistants (PAs) and pass legislation allowing them to practice. This first-person account supported by interviews with those who were there details the trail to NJ licensure, including the development of a state society, the growth of support from strong leaders in the medical and academic communities, and the grassroots efforts of many PAs aspiring to work in their home state.

Maryann Ramos is a retired clinical and academic PA. Ellen D. Mandel is a clinical professor in the Department of PA Studies at Pace University-Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. The authors have disclosed no potential conflicts of interest, financial or otherwise.
