flight nursing

  1. Hello,
    I would appreciate any help I can get. I am currently an LPN and an EMT. I am in school to get my ADN, and would eventually like to be a flight nurse. I am doing a research paper in RN school on the field I would like to go into. If any one can help please email me. Mainly I would like to know what a typical day is like, what sort of requirements are needed, any good web pages to look at, and anything else anyone can think of. I really appreciate it.
    Thanks Tonia
