  1. I am grateful for the opportunity to work at my own pace in a comfortable setting, considering I am the cliche single mom with a part time job, etc. ...But I do feel at times like I am just memorizing words and not absorbing the whole idea. I do well on chapter work, but when it comes to tests I feel lost and too often I just barely get by. A&P has been the longest and hardest chapter by far, and I relied solely on Google and Youtube videos to get me through that one. I have finally moved on which is a relief, but the biggest challenge is being disciplined enough to set aside X amount o
  2. Yes, it exists. It is through a website called Trainingdivision.com. 80% of the course is done online at your own pace, and at the end of each semester, students are required to attend a 7 day hands-on skills class at the training center in Crowley, TX. After passing all the exams, we are then required to do the same amount of clinical rotations as any other program. Same books, same information, I am just presented with more of a challenge because I am basically teaching myself.

  6. Hi everyone! I am a 27 year old female EMT, just starting my paramedic course. Other than my EMT training, I have no prior EMS experience, and my current job is nowhere near the medical profession.

I look forward to talking with some of you and becoming more confident in my chosen career path. : )
