I currently am a basic EMT and EMS lieutenant with my local fire dept. My problem is that I'm debating taking up nursing and then challenging the paramedic test to get my paramedic as I've been told that this can be done and I think it would leave me more options in the career field. I would ultimately love to work in an emergency room setting or similar fast paced environment. I'm looking for a profesional opinion as to which path I should take or if anyone has any other recomendations it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
