Thanks for that the only thing is in the next month or so we are getting relocated. My husband is in the army and sometime in the next week we will be getting our new duty station. And I can not even start researching untill I know where we are going. If I get the certs that I need here if I can get them done that fast are they transferable or should I just wait untill we get to where we are going? Any thoughts on that would be great thanks.Getting Ambulance Certs, than Live Scan for background checks for both EMT and Ambulance Cert. Start applying and hope to get in, that's how it is in CA after passing the NREMT.
Sending in my stuff (once I get it) to the state, getting my license and applying to a few places here. Most likely I'll work for a private company (i.e. transfers) but I hope to get some paid per diem work at a fire department. My end goal is to work full-time at a fire station, which will mean I'll have to pass the firefighter physical. If I can't get the paid per diem work, I'll try to do volunteer EMS in between shifts for the private company.Congrats on passing your test. where do you plan to go from there? I will be taking the n/r soon and I am not sure what the next step will be.
For all of those absolutely convinced you did not pass, try and ignore it and wait until you get the official results. I was absolutely positive I would need to retake, but as it turns out, I passed!There is absolutely no way on earth I passed. Test went to about 120 questions and I felt really frustrated because I just kept getting questions that I felt I was throwing out a guess on. I got a TON of questions related to OB/Childbirth, and those definitely hurt me. Will have to relearn all that material because I didn't cover much of that in my class.
Have to wait and see for sure, but I think it's going to be time to hit the books a little harder this time around =/
Right on that seems like a plan. I would like to join the fire acadamy and then medic school. First though I just wanna get passed the NREMT. Guess I will go from there I am trying to get it done before we move of course it would be nice to know where we are going so I can do research. But I suppose that the army way lol.Sending in my stuff (once I get it) to the state, getting my license and applying to a few places here.

You'll know tomorrow morning.I just took it yesterday and I'm fairly certain I failed. I know everyone says they felt the same way, but I still think I failed, lol. I don't remember the last question, but I looked up several of the ones I did remember, and I definitely got a few wrong. These were questions that I know I should have known, yet I answered incorrectly. For me, the test started out difficult and I was pretty much guessing on all of the answers. I was only able to narrow it down to three or maybe two answers. After about 5-10 questions it got easier and then it went on to a different topic. I definitely think I failed at least the first subject because of that. Anyway, I'm hoping to find out tomorrow whether I passed, but I'm still worried about it. I'm already making plans to retest in case I fail.
