With the 100's of people on here talking about how horrible the job market is for new grads in PA(Philly area), I am wondering if it would be a better choice to go the Paramedic route. Does anyone know the job market in that area? I was going to move up to Philly and attend nursing school there bc "there is such a huge shortage" haaa ....but after reading tons on this forum I've learned that there is NO longer a shortage there. Here in Miami there are quite a few schools who offer scholarships contracted with Baptist hospital so you are guaranteed a job for at least 2 -3 years(which is why I'm contemplating staying here and applying for those programs). But I may still have to go to PA for personal reasons. If I do, I'm wondering if I'd be better of going the Paramedic route if I plan on landing a job after graduation! As it is I still have ALL my pre-reqs to take! By the time I'm done with NS, I'm afraid the market will be even MORE saturated!
