Hello, I'm new to this. I'll be a a EMT student in August and was told that I have to have health insurance throughout the entire time that I'm an EMT student as well as when I become a Paramedic student. Do you all have any advice for me? I'm guessing that I should volunteer as an EMT so that I can keep my free health insurance ( i get this because of a disability) as well as have time to study for paramedic school or work part-time as an EMT once I get my certification and hope I don't lose my health insurance while working or just work full-time having benefits as an EMT and attend paramedic school full-time as well? Has anyone been able to work full-time as an EMT and go for the paramedic program full time? I mean is it possible? Also, in order to be eligible for Paramedic school I have to have worked as an EMT or volunteer as one for at least 6 months. how are you guys working and going to school? sounds difficult. Maybe I should have went for the nursing program so once I finish I could just start working. ugh! Sorry If this question has already been answered several times with other posts. If it has can someone send me the link? Thank you guys so much. Have a blessed day.
