Work as a medic to be a better ER nurse?

Recommended Posts

Hello! New RN here. I have my NREMT-B license as well for roughly 3 years. I wanted to gain more experience as an ER nurse. Medics are constantly on calls for intubations, administering necessary meds and working with possible trauma patients. My ER is not a busy  ER so I'd like to get more experience working with unstable patients and it appears that many paramedic skills would be very beneficial to ER nurses. I also like the pre-hospital environment. My question is would it make sense to work as a paramedic PT while working in the ER as a nurse?
