    Allied Medical Training RN to EMT Bridge

    First of all, I really appreciate all of this help, advice, and insight. Thank you for each of y'alls responses. Through the research I have done, I came to understand that in order to meet the qualifications to be a flight nurse I would need a ...

    I appreciate your feedback and advice! I had not heard of MICN and I am looking into that now to see if there are any opportunities for that specialty in my area.

    Allied Medical Training RN to EMT Bridge

    Again, I don't mean to turn this discussion into a debate as I have noticed that often times this topic can become a bit heated for some reason or the other. Why people are so passionate about what other people do with their time and resources, I don...
  4. I'm not here to start a debate or argument about whether an RN should get their EMT or anything along those lines. My question is simple: Has anyone here done the RN to EMT bridge program AMT offers and if so I just have a few follow up questions. Wo...

    More dangerous: Navy or Army

    Hey, kind of off topic here, but I just found out today that I have latent TB. I'll be meeting with a doctor soon to discuss treatment. Would I still be able to serve in the military? I read a thread that said in civilian nursing they will let you w...

    Doesn't the U.S Public Health Service take care of them?

    More dangerous: Navy or Army

    After thinking about what you said Neats, I think you may be right. I think I'm getting too caught up in the glamor of being in the military or grandstanding a title as you put it. I don't know. I want to serve, but at the same time there's nothing ...

    More dangerous: Navy or Army

    Thank-you for your service. I'm definitely keeping that in my options also. I'm looking at everything. I'm currently finishing up my senior year of high school, so I'm still trying to figure things out and I'm sure once I get into nursing school a...

    Have Nurse, I'm sorry if it sounded like I was asking which branch was better than the others, that's not what I meant at all. They all have very well qualified nurses and doctors, but each branch has there own specialty that is unique to that branc...

    More dangerous: Navy or Army

    Thanks for chiming in jfractian. I have looked into the Air Force a little bit, but had mostly written them off because of the chair force jokes. Foolish assumption though, you people do some really awesome stuff. I'm going to keep my options open a...

    Thanks for the comments. Sounds like the Army would be my best bet. Thankfully my school recently partnered with another school to provide ROTC, so I think I'll look into that.

    Hello again. I've posted before with some questions about the Navy's NCP and I was pretty much dead set on joining the Navy, but I'm starting to wonder if it wouldn't be the best fit. I chose the Navy because I knew my dad, who is opposed to me join...

    Why did you pick your banch?

    I've been looking into military nursing and it seems to be pretty universal throughout the branches as far as what your job is. Why did you choose your branch or if you are currently considering joining a certain branch, why are you looking into that...

    I think you're right about the ACEN accreditation. Good to know about the MSN option. Hopefully my school will get the ACEN accreditation. I still have to finish my senior year of high school and then after that I'll have one year of pre-requisites b...
