  1. There's a public college in Washington state that offers a bachelor's degree in paramedicine. I had a friend go through the program a couple years back and I was kinda jealous; she got to do cadaver labs. The county I live in requires medics to go through their specific program or your cert doesn't count, or else I'd love to get my B.S. through them.

    All of the (decent) EMS books I've read were done by those in the service.

    I don't have any stories for you, unless you're interested in a fire call that's still embarrassing for me. I am curious how you are planning on publishing it though. Self-publish? E-book form? Planning on doing any cover art or illustrations inside?

    Why is this posted twice ._.
  5. Or come to Seattle ??? it's not that far out
  6. Nice to meet you! I'm a broke-ass college student. Not in EMS or anything. Probably best if you put your questions in "Patient care" questions under the question section of the forum.
  7. Hi y'all, it's been a couple of years since I posted. I doubt anyone remembers me (I was the annoying kid who posted drawings & pretended that she knew things! :D). I have a bit of a long story for you though! I'm currently a freshman at university and a student police cadet with my university PD. I'm also a volunteer firefighter when I'm home. I'm really enjoying it. Here's the catch! A couple of months ago I became depressed & have been diagnosed with depression. I am trying antidepressants. The first meds I took (lexapro) made me feel suicidal so I had to stop taking the
  8. The medic program I am looking at is close to home and either two-year (for the degree) or one-year (for the certificate). I talked to a local medic and he said that most of his college classes transferred to his medic degree. So even if I go for an associate's in paramedicine, I should be done in a year with all the transfer credits. I had thought about going to medic school at the same time as I'm getting my bachelors, but I didn't know if that was realistic...now that you mentioned it I will check out the logistics again. If the hiring process for that FD doesn't work out, I'll suck it up
  9. Hi all! It's been forever since I've been on! I hope you haven't forgotten my face!! I am seeing that there is a problem with my future goals and I'm not sure if they're attainable. I want to 1) get my Bachelor's degree in Pre-med by the time I'm 20 (I'll graduate high school with my associate's, so I can do this!). During that time I want to do a fire department residency or work as an EMT for AMR. 2) immediately after getting my bachelor's, I want to go to paramedic school (be done with that by the time I'm 21) 3) I want to be a fire/medic for a few years! on a fire department. Mostly I w
  10. That would not be the smartest thing. If making money was important to me, I'd be a politician.
  11. To answer your question...I'm a banker Just kidding. I'm so glad you actually brought that to my attention. I got a good laugh when I went to read the ACTUAL meaning of the Caduceus and saw that it was used incorrectly as a symbol for healthcare. It's kind of terrible, when you think about the cost of healthcare in the US. But something can be said for EMS, which properly used the Rod of Ascelpius. So now I'm stuck with this username. I'm just going to assign another arbitray meaning to it to render the original meaning completely moot.
  12. Thanks for the advice all...I didn't do so hot on my first exam (89%) but I'll do better the next time around.
  13. I'm taking human anatomy and physiology right now and I need some tips for studying! The methods I used in gen. bio. aren't working for me with this class, it's much harder. Does anyone have some advice for succeeding in this class? (not just passing, but getting an A.)
  14. I am truly sorry to hear this. He offered me some great advice and was very supportive. I am very sorry for your loss, Mrs. Sparks.
