Venificus, you sound like a...hmmm...paramedic at one point who is now a doctor and used to be a Doc? Good guess?

The details of my resume are not for public consumption, it is considerable, expands now 5 countries and multiple states in the US.

it just seems you may be a little unduly harsh towards the idea of PAs and NPs.

I reserve a special place in my heart for people who give a hard time to medics but basically practice glorified cookbook medicine in a narrow specialty with a few more pathways to follow on their treatment protocols.

We are having many of our medical protocals changed to guidelines. A much less rigid structure. Instead of "Do this, this and this" It will now be "Consider this, this and this". Thus allowing the paramedic to think and do what they think is best for the patient.

Our protocols are no longer going to be guidelines. They are now going to be directions to apply treatment as medically indicated. WHICH THOUGH, means we can use a drug for something not on our protocol, but we simply need to get an order first.

I take the class next Thursday so I guess I'll find out

Be sure to be prepared to do a NREMT medical / Trauma assessment. A few people failed and had to re-test the skills station again.

Not a problem at all seeing how I am a NREMT skills instructor up at college. Thanks for the heads up tho.
