    So I got a job

    Hey all! Well, I finally got hired. I have applied at various hospitals and clinics here in my area to no avail. I applied at a senior community as a Medtech and Caregiver, and was hired. I figure its a start, being that I have never had a job before, it will get me some experience and perhaps...

    Joining the NAEMT?

    Does joining the NAEMT help in terms of getting a job? Like if a company, be it a clinic or ambulance company sees you are part of the NAEMT on your resume, will it look good?

    EMT I in Las Vegas, NV

    I have my NREMT I85, but no state/county card/license; I am not currently looking to work for an ambulance company- I am looking to work in a hospital or a clinic...will my NREMT cert suffice or what do I need to do? Is there a test I have to take? If so, what is on the test?

    What should i ask during my ride along and ER shift?

    Whenever you see a drug used- ask how it works, and also ask if there is an alternative to that medicine if the pt cannot have it for whatever reason. Ask them to let you do vitals in the rescue, get used to the sound and the bumpy ride whilst taking vitals. If you plan on working in the...

    Nope. Basic and Intermediate 85 are CBT. Do you feel that metabolites are higher level stuff?

    So...I took my test today at around 11:30; (its currently 5:52 PM here), it took me about 45 minutes. Stopped me at 85 questions.

    This Thursday is my NREMT I85

    In an effort to see what I should expect, below I have posted questions from MY IN CLASS FINAL EXAM, not NREMT questions; perhaps someone could kindly give me an idea as to if the questions are harder than the NREMT 85 test or easier etc. A single ectopic impulse that originates in either...
