OK...My goal is to eventually be a flight RN. Because of financial issues, I was going to get my LPN first, then my EMT-P, and then work my way to my RN.
I understand there are flight crews that utilize paramedics, so my question is- Should I...
a) Scrap the LPN idea (thus saving myself $7,000), go ahead and get my EMT-P and work as a paramedic (in order to gain the requisite pre-hospital emergency experience) and try to get on a flight team as a paramedic and then work into my RN?
b) Go ahead with the LPN ($7,000 and 10 months), then get my EMT-P, then work into my RN?
I am leaning toward the first option, but those of you working in the flight aspect of nursing might have a different opinion and/or ideas. Or be able to point me to resources that might answer my question.
I really appreciate it, y'all!
