So, I've been thinking lately and wanted to see if anyone else had any advice.
I'm working 24/48s as a paramedic, and I am smack dab in the middle of my 2nd of 3 semesters of transition. Work is getting to be a bit extreme on the BS and such since my agency is going through a kind of a hostile takeover. I'm guaranteed a job no matter who comes in and runs the show, but since I'm getting closer to being done with school, I was thinking about picking up a nurse intern spot (or advanced nurse tech) at one of the hospitals and ride that out until school is over. This way I would already have a job in the hospital, and as long as all went well, I could just move up to an open RN spot when I finish everything and get that magical blue card.
I've got a wife and kids to support so money is an issue, but I obviously don't get paid excessive amounts of cash for what I do now either.
I'm not looking for any answer or for someone to make my decision for me. Just looking to see if anyone else out there has gone this route, or have heard stories of the same. Thanks!
