  2. The Infamous Cab-ulance
    Are you medic2514? How do you know what he is thinking? On the EMS forums some Paramedics get into a tantrum mode as soon as the education word is mentioned. I bet he has said the same "I am...

  3. WHY do I need a BSN?
    Hasn't anybody taken advantage of the tuition assistance of their employer PLUS their state's RN loan forgiveness or repayment? Examples: http://www.benefits.gov/benefits/benefit-details/449 ...

  4. The Infamous Cab-ulance
    Amazing how everytime someone mentions the education for Paramedics should be raised it is seen as a hate post. Thus EMS remains a certificate technician and those who might love EMS but must move on...

  5. The Infamous Cab-ulance
    I see you still want a medic vs nurse discussion even though those commenting at you are experienced in EMS. RNs get what they need to know about codes in their orientation which is a lot...

  6. I already have a bachelors in Exercise Science. Should I get my ADN?
    Do not go backwards in degrees. Transfer those credits to a BSN or one of the few entry MSN programs. Nursing will not care about your other degrees. The BSN is what will matter. You also...

  7. WHY do I need a BSN?
    There is actually no reason for the nurses with 20+ years of experience to act like this is a big surprise. ADN vs BSN is definitely not new. Back in the 1980s the BSN legislation was a big deal....

  8. The Infamous Cab-ulance
    Your comment makes not sense. If it takes 30 years of "street smarts" to be compared with a new grad with a college degree than I think my point has been made. Let's make a more realistic...

  9. The Infamous Cab-ulance
    Two years tell us very little. Many programs are stretch out the same numbers of "hours of trainig" over a long period of time. EMT is also only about 110 to 150 hours which could be done in 3...

  11. Why do some choose to pursue BSN over ASN first?
    I suppose you want to stay at that one hospital in the same job until you retire. No transfers or promotions? Same pay grade?What happens if you friend is no longer the manager when you finish? Even...

  12. The Infamous Cab-ulance
    What has EMS done to improve things? There is no way Paramedics in the US are prepared to run at the same level as those in other countries which have a Masters degree. Six to eight months of...

  13. WHY do I need a BSN?
    In the American language a question can also indicate sarcasm. Where did you get the "2 semesters" from for a bridge program for Paramedics. YOU mentioned it. If know of a 2 semester bridge program,...

  15. WHY do I need a BSN?
    Paramedics can also take the program right after receiving their cert. This is a very easy way for a Paramedic to get to RN. It is definitely shorter than any "bridge" program.
