Essay for getting into Paramedic course

Recommended Posts

Im in the Army, as a 68W ( Medic ) you are required to have EMT-B, but i have been given the opprotunity to write an essay to be considered to get my Paramedics liscence. Its a 6-month long course 

and only a few in our Battalion are being selected. Ideas for the essay??

Hot button topic that you might be acutely familiar with already. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Cumulative Stress Injury. Do a comparative analysis as well as statistics (that you can find)

Or, how about Doctor Assisted euthanasia?

Is this an admissions essay?  Do they give you any guidance as to what they're looking for?  Along the lines of "I want to be an Army paramedic because..."?  Or something completely different?  You've got a lot of possibilities here.  Write about an NCO you know/worked with (also a paramedic) who inspired you.  Write about how you becoming a paramedic will better serve the needs of the Army.  Write about how you becoming a paramedic will help you better represent the Army.

Admissions essays suck.  I'll be happy to never have to write another one ever again.

They didn't pick me, oh well. They picked the Senior Specialists that had been there longer which is understandable but thanks you guys so much. My 1SG was pretty happy with my essay and said it was only rank that kept me back.

Don't give up on it. Are you somewhere stable? No PCS coming up? No looming deployments? Any local paramedic programs you could get in to?
