  1. Wow, I certainly didn't expect such a response. I have to say after thinking about it I can respect the school's reasoning behind the lecture and I believe there is some educational value, especially in the case of being able to recognize certain sign of child abuse etc. I definitely am not aiming to start any trouble for the school, it is truly a terrific program and in all honesty I cannot say that they are at any fault here. I don't see myself making a formal complaint especially since out of a class of 20+ students I was the only one that I know of who had such a reaction. In all fairness
  2. Today for our last day of lecture they had the county coroner come in to give a lecture about determining/pronouncing death and what criteria counts for making that determination. Well, what slide show would not be complete with out pictures, I mean pictures of various suicides, homicides (ie someone who jumped in front of a train, someone who put a shotgun in their mouth, you get the idea).

  3. I have 2 weeks left of my EMT training class and then hopefully take the NREMT shortly after. I have used all the resources the school provides (workbook, jblearning website etc.) however I still don't feel prepared for the NREMT exam.

  5. I am almost done with my EMT class but still have to do the ambulance ride-along. They said black slacks, white button up shirt and black boots/shoes. Here's the deal. I swear I hardly own any pants besides jeans (I'm mostly a skirts and dresses kind of gal), I don't even have a pair of black slacks. So, does it really matter what "style" they are for just the ride-along? Can they be simple like dickies? Also I do not have black boot/shoes that aren't baled flats or heels. So, since I have to buy those too, do they really need to be like those work boots? Any suggestions here would be greatly
