I am an RN also a paramedic, I was a paramedic first. I always dreamed of being a paramedic, since kindergarten to be exact... I will be honest, I went to nursing school
really so I could make a better living, and not really because I had a desire to be a nurse. I know I am going to take a beating on here for that statement!!
Just wondering if any other EMS professionals are having problems making a tansition from emt/paramedic to RN... and if so how much time did you give it? (been a nurse for three years now, tried a new area, still love my office on wheels much better).
Any oppinions would be appreciated!

Its just the total lack of autonomy! I started in the level 2b special care nursery, took NRP the other day... and everything is the Dr. will do... hell I can't even put in an umbilical line at this hospital as a nurse! give me a break!! I was told oh your job is to just hold the clamps up, oh thats so challenging, NOT!
Already worked in the ER for three years, hated it!
I just can't stand the Dr. may I...
