Updated Navy PA Career Roadmap

Our Navy PA Specialty Leader, Assistant Specialty Leaders, and others have worked together to recently update a standardized "road map" for a Navy PA's career.

These roadmaps should serve as general frameworks with which one could plan and navigate their career.

We remain grateful to our Navy PA leadership and to our community as we all work to enhance our own and each other's careers. One Navy PA Team.
