I'm obviously very interested in a career in flight nursing. I'm trying to work my way through the myriad of certs.
Here's a brief resume.
BA in Poli Sci.
2.5 years Patient Care Tech on Transplant ICU
ADN Took boards in Feb 12.
Current ED RN (Lvl 3) 7 mos experience.
Just accepted PRN position at a Lvl 1 Pediatric ED (and Express Admit Unit)
BLS, ACLS, Triage, Moderate Sedation Certs.
PALS next month.
Planning on TNCC, and ENPC classes ASAP. Trying to work out scheduling for ITLS class in October as well. I've also got CEN on the agenda, but want to tackle that after 2 years experience.
I'm seriously considering a Paramedic Bridge program, but I'm also a divorced father of two, so my free time is disappearing quite quickly, and to my knowledge no programs are available in AL. I looked into Creighton's 2 week class, but I'm a little weary of the price, and the 2 weeks vacation/room board/flight fare I would have to figure out. Anyhow, I know anything worth having is going to require some sacrifice. Any tips?
