I just took the NREMT-P exam this morning at 10:15 PST. I got all the way to 168 questions! I kid you not, and I had 37 minutes left to test. I did get the last question right as I looked it up in the text book. Let me cross my fingers on this one.
I talked to all of my buddies and they said they've never heard of anyone even going past 140 pass or fail!
135 questions in 27 mins, multiple metabolic and respiratory acid, and alkolosis questions with a few basic OBGYN questions...i thought i bombed it when it asked me the same question more than once...just kepot tellin my self ABC's.....
Took my EMT-I / 85 test late yesterday afternoon and the test stopped right at 85.
Personally, I don't have a good feeling about it since there was at least ONE question it asked me three times. My pass or fail is not posted yet, HOWEVER, I think I may have passed because yesterday when I logged onto NREMT's web site it listed my certification as EMT-B with my registry number. TODAY when I log in it lists my certification as EMT-I/85 with my expiration date as 3/31/12. So I THINK I passed. I'll post back when I find out.
TCC? Nah I was trained at Methodist in Dallas (If that's what the TCC was referring to). I plan on going back there in the fall to take my paramedic training.. I hear it's one of the best in the state, and from what I learned in the Basic course, I believe it.
BTW Linuss, I see you're from FW also.. do you mind if I ask about different hiring opportunities for Basics? Does MedStar hire Basic's full time? I'd love to get some real world experience before I get involved in EMT-P coursework. Absolutely nothing beats having real world experience imo. I'll take PT if that's all I can get, but FT would be awesome.
