Hello all, been a long while since I posted on these forums. I'm looking for some advice. my goal ever since starting my career has been to become a flight nurse. I finally achieved that goal recently and will start orientation in a couple weeks for a local non-profit HEMS service. I've found that I have been so focused on meeting the requirements, nailing the interviews, studying for the tests ect. that I really neglected really thinking about the inherent dangers associated with this line of work and I don't know that I really have prepared myself for it. I've found myself getting more nervous about flying everyday the closer orientation starts. I have done flight ride outs before and enjoyed it, but the thought of doing it everyday has kept me up a few nights lately. I know this sounds stupid because this is what signed up for and worked towards for years now, but I don't know, now that it's here I have a nervous feeling I can't seem to shake. Prior to this all I would think about is what I needed to know to get the job, now that I have it, I have been thinking about things like how my daughters would grow up if I were in a crash and died in the next year. Is this normal for anyone one else? Any encouraging words?
