Which do you think would be better? I am almost licensed as an EMT, and love it already, but just got accepted into nursing school. What are some pros and cons to each?
That's what he's suggesting. As a nurse with some experience, you can take a 2-week course and then take the test to become a registered paramedic. This route seems like the clear best choice for someone in your situation, who isn't dead set on one or the other. It's much easier to do it this way than the other way around.What if I went to nursing school, and then became a paramedic?
It isn't like that in the US. The two educational tracks are completely different.You will probably find, as certainly is the case in Australasia, the Paramedic degree and Nursing degree are made up of many of the same papers, at least in first year There may also be the option, as in Australia, of doing a double degree.
