Hello from Baghdad,
My name is Jason, and I am currently working in the EMT (ER) of Ibn Sina Hospital, Baghdad, Iraq. I am currently deployed with the 28th Combat Support Hospital. ... I have worked a number of ED's in the US, and nothing in the world compares to this experience. Any specific questions feel free.
Hello CPT JGraham,
Nice to read you.
edited to add! Thanks for allowing questions and for getting online to post this to us!
Not sure if and when I would be deployed, (as a new student graduate I am sure that requirements include some med/surg bedside experience before hand).
This is why my question is, "what is the least amount of bedside experience any of the nurses deployed has?" I have read at this site that some nurses were deployed after four months of bedside experience.
I plan to volunteer but, wonder what the likelihood would be, as a new nurse anticipated to graduate in June '07. I figure that it may be possible to go to Germany but, of course, would prefer Iraq.
