Are there any Des Moines Flight Nurses here?

  1. My goal is to eventually become a flight nurse in Des Moines. I am actually just getting started with the whole process. I will be starting the ADN program at DMACC next fall and I'm planning on taking the EMT-B course and Mercy in the spring. I am wanting to find out the requirements, in Des Moines specifically, for flight nurses. Should I have my RN and EMT-P? Also, I would love to get some advice on whether or not I should get EMT training now before I start the ADN program next fall and work as an EMT while in school or would it be more beneficial to work as a CNA? I'm just not sure what direction to go. I've been to the flight nursing page and unfortunately I haven't seen and Flight nurses from Des Moines. Any replies will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.

    Check out the Mercy One ride along program. It's for EMT's and nurses but you might be able to give them a call to talk about your questions.[/URL]
