I have met some very salty 3 year medics haha that I do not want to be like whatsoever! hope to be off probation with ______ fire dept. utilizing all the education I had to work so hard for. Cheers!!!

Four stages

Age 8 to 16: vertebrate paleontologist.
Age 22 to 26: paramedic.
Age 26 to 33: RN, work in ER, maybe beome supervisor, publish.
Now: retire in 2007 (oops....).I meant retire in six months or less to a non-nursing job.
Five years? Too uncertain.

It is all good as long as tou are not saying:

"Five years? Pine box."

However, I do like the "Carousing the Red Light District in some Asian City" response... EMTLIFE - "Opening up Possibilities for the Masses" ^_^

since no one else mentioned it....living..lol
otherwise, I have no clue, have done too many things and haven't found the right one yet. Otherwise, obtain as much training and education as possible to be the best at whatever i choose to do...generic, i know, but it works.

So many different things I want to do, hard to narrow it down. Hopefully at least some of the following will be done or in the process of doing:

- be done with my B.S.
- get my FP-C and work as a flight medic
- international medical expatriate deployment (International SOS, etc.)
- starting the process of relocating to Australia to work as a paramedic in their system

Yeah, I know...pretty chaotic.
