OK, So I am new here, and don't generally have much to say...But, really? REALLY?!
I am a paramedic, and have been for almost 20 years. Most people that work in police, fire, and EMS have to work multiple jobs to make ends meet. Additionally, many of them are volunteers, and are serving their community in their "spare" time.
Yes, no doubt being a nurse is physically, intellectually, and emotionally demanding. However, for the most part, nurses are well compensated and work in a safe environment. Such is not the case for police, fire, or EMS.
