Sorry if I put this in the wrong spot... I'm super new
I'm not a new grad yet. I am just about to start my prereqs. I have a family to support, so ideally I would like to have a job at least while I finish my prereqs. I would love to end up in ICU (I know what you're thinking but I thrive on crazy.. no seriously... you should meet my family) Anyways, my question is; If I get my Emergency Medical Tech (EMT) certification and do that part-time while I go to school do you think that would help prepare me for ICU or help me get a job in ICU when I graduate or is my time better spent trying to volunteer in an ICU. We could get by without my income if volunteering would be the better choice but it is nice to be able to afford a night out with the hubby sometimes.
Any input would be wonderful.
