Hey! Im new here and was wondering about a few things.I am a 27M and currently a Paramedic in Southern California running 911 calls. I have always thought the position of ED Nurse seemed interesting and have decided to begin to pursue my BSN. I am taking my pre-requisites and have already achieved a BA in psychology previously. I am wondering: Is it beneficial to get a job as an ED Tech to gain more exposure to the ED RN position directly?Does my Paramedic experience, BA, even being a male help with BSN admissions? Or is GPA the only factor.What is the most valuable thing I can do in the transition from Paramedic to BSN student to career RN?Ultimately I would like to spend most of my time in the ED as that is what I find most interesting but I am aware that I will have to "pay my dues" elsewhere and have no problem with that. Anyone else a medic or know one that has made this transition with similar circumstances?Thanks!!
