I stumbled across this site, and I have a question. I'm a second-year BSN student and an EMT-B, and I'm looking to do Critical Care Transport (on the ground) as a career. I'm planning to do 3 years in the ICU, go for a CNS, and get all the required classes (ACLS, PALS, etc.) and then apply for a ground CCT job.
My concern is this: I get motion sick. I AM able to get over this with the use of Dramamine (I'm going to try ginger gum at some point too), but I'm concerned that this will hold me back or keep me from getting a ground CCT-RN job.
Is this a reasonable concern? Is it something that will hold me back, or no?
Also, for those of you who work CCT or know a lot about it, what exactly is the hiring process like? I'm guessing there's a background check (I have nothing to hide!), driving record check, etc. Is there also a psych evaluation? And with the background check, is it like a police/fire background check, or just a records check? Not that I have anything to hide, I just like to understand what I'm getting into when it comes to stuff like this!
Also, any tips to make me a better candidate or make me more desirable?
