new student

  1. I too am an emergency department anthusiast as one can tell from my posting. I wanted to find out if I had what it takes, so I volunteered at the local ER. I helped and learned for 4hrs. every friday night, for 2 yrs. It was the most worth-while experience of recent years, and it also confirmed the thoughts of whether or not I should or should not. Now I am a senior in nursing school and I am getting all the certs and experience I can. I am also thankful for the advice coming from this web site, it has been reaffirming what I am already doing.

    I am a new nursing student who needs to know how to go about getting her foot in the door. Would it be advisable to get an EMT liscence? If so how do I go about it. I would like to get some good experience in the Emergency department, so I can find out if this is the field I really want to go into. Can anyone suggest any classes, or programs to get into while I am also taking 16 credit hours of school? I would really appreciate it. My e-mail address is Thanks,
