    i know quite a few people who went that route.

    route: get a bachelors degree. then get a masters degree from a PA program. hard to do full time and go to PA school, but part time/per diem as a medic is def doable.

    Get your bachelors with the necessary prereqs, then apply. The field experience will be useful. Don't plan on being able to work during school.

    I had a couple of coworkers who did PA school while working FT, one as an EMT Basic, and one as a Medic. Depends on your work and study habits, and if your company and partner lets you sleep between patients.
