    Hello,
    I really do not know if there is a difference in Paramedic Fight Nurse or if they have such things. I wanted to go back to the ED and have no current experience. I have all the certifications and still hit roadblocks. I thought prehospital as i met a couple new grad nurses who were paramedics and doing Flight For Life here in Colorado. Thus i thought go to school and get a Paramedic. I am not saying all nurse should. I just know my roadblocks.

    Hello,
    ICU NUrse I am not discussing in hospital nursing, I am talking about prehospital, EMS in the field. I also was an ICU nurse at UCLA in 1981 for three years then went to University Utah Med Cntr. I actually worked with Barney Clark in that SICU, Balloon Pumps pre cardiac transplant and Post. My discussion is about the roles prehospal nurses do versus Paramedic. I am and will always be a nurse but I want to go prehospital as a change. I have worked for 28 years and feel i have a new way to expand re-invent myself out of 12 years ICU and 5 ED which I loved

    Hello,
    I actually worked in Level One trauma in L.A. 17 years ago, seriously difficult.I love ER. I am only saying or trying to figure out where I want to be. I really want ED but I have had problems reentering the field of ED because of lack of current experience. I am going to go to Creighton University, Nebraska, RN to Paramedic if accepted next May 09.I am searching for the next facit and am interested in flight because I want to move to Alaska where a daughter lives. I would be ok with ED and also truly never said paramedics are inferior to hospital based nurses. I want to learn to be a Paramedic, go to school, work in prehospital and hospital.Decision preparedness is what you learn after TNCC, ACLS, CEN. Paramedic is what I want to study for to enhance and progress. I actually feel paramedics are above RN's seriously due to the life crisis and no error for mistakes on judgement. I have dealt with parents of teens killed on streets in L.A. in the ED controlled environment and literally a childs demise is not a controlled event in any place or time.In fact hospitals see more traumatic grief because parents expect the child to live once they arive in a hospital.In any event I am only asking what you think a good paramedic program would be. I initially was going to go for P.A. then realized I love ER.Why not prehospital. I don't know that I would fly with dual certification, but as a flight nurse paramedic is the edge I need to get into the field in Colorado.If you are a nurse and a paramedic you might be on the flight crew; prehospital before a regular RN.

    Hello,
    Do any of you RN or Paramedic's know which is best for school. I am starting EMT-B and have been an RN 27 years. I worked in level 1 Trauma center in L.A. Calif, about 15 years ago. I want to come back to Calif. as a Flight Nurse, or paramedic, I really see it's not about the money for me, it's about the experience that is available to me.Nursing in all areas has been bmy life as my children are now raised I'm looking forward to the second chapter.

    Hello,
    I am signed to take the EMT-B at the local college here in Colorado, I'm excited. I actually have been a nurse many many years, my kids are grown and I am single. So I decided to turn my attention to returning to the ED as a Flight Nurse. I took TNCC, ACLS, PALS, now EMT-b and also retaking my C.E.N. When i signed up for PALS the EMS coordinator told me about the program in nebraska, ?? I am interested in that. It's 2 weeks, RN to Paramedic and $2000. I was told. I do not know where it is but if i don't go there i will do the Paramedic program at the community college. I currently do not have an ED position I'm on a Regional FloatPool.
