Specializes in pediatrics, occupational health. Has 6 years experience.
In chapter 1, I discussed my reasons for leaving EMS and going into nursing. I wanted to never have to scrape another teenager off of a highway; never scoop a seizing infant away from an abusive parent; never fight for the life of an unbuckled 4 year old in a car accident and lose. I never again wanted to hear the screams of a parent who just realized their world has come to a sudden end as I look down on my bloody hands that tried so hard to win. So, I became a nurse.
