At the moment I am an EMT-b in the state of Pennsylvania, I really love it. However, I want to go to school to become a trauma nurse. I really don't want to stop being an EMT though and I'm very interested in becoming a paramedic too. Would it be feasible to go to school for nursing, but take a two year paramedic course on the side? Also, I've looked into paramedic to nurse bridge programs and I really don't think that is the best option for me. And I'm not sure if going to a two year school to become a paramedic and then going to school to become a nurse is the best option for me either; most two year paramedic programs are at community colleges and I believe I do too well in school to go to a community college after high school (not at ALL saying that people who attend community college are unintelligent in anyway). Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated for I am going into my senior year and need to get a lot of these things straightened out.
I want to get into flight nursing down the road and early on in my career I would like to work as a paramedic part time. And volunteer!
