As if having all those initials behind my name wasn't enough, I have found the next bridge to jump off of. I did EMS in nursing school, but stopped because I could do more as a nurse in the hospital. The closure of my base made me realize that had I been a dual provider I may have had more options. So in the name of getting back in the air I have signed up for my area's first RN-Paramedic bridge program. Unfortunately I have already undergone some hazing from my nursing colleagues.... who seem to believe that this is a step down instead of a chance to broaden my experiences. One even said that I may as well take the RN-Housekeeper bridge (that really pissed me off!).
I also need to get on my CEN and CCRN recerts. Has it been that long already? I sure as shit don't want to take CCRN again.
Note on my last post. The lady who was too fat for the rib spreaders died. (no huge surprise there) I am still trying to figure out what her major injuries were. We also had another child that was struck by a lawn mower that her grandfather was driving. She lost an arm.... she was about 5. I am SO tired of this.
