Name: Mimi, "Meems", or "LT", but please don't call me Captain (used to a very military bunch of folks in Hampton Roads)
Years at NVCC: decades as student, have AS in EMS (also have BS from George Washington Medical in Emergency Management with a minor in EMS Education); also few years as Adjunct Faculty in EMS (@ GW, too), so I know CPR!
Joined the FBook Group: Yes
Career Goal: Masters/Doctorate
Planning to Transfer: Yes (Mason)
Classes Completed: NUR 108/130 at Tidewater Community College (TCC)--we are being transferred back to DC; most electives, not sure yet if classes taken in the 1980s will count for HLT 141 & 250
About me: I am a disability retired firefighter/medic Acting Captain from Arlington County after 23 years in EMS (bilateral total hip replacements); EMS Training Officer; ran treatment sector at Pentagon on 9/11; tried fitness field for a few years and it didn't workout--I missed medical; glad to be back caring for folks and administering meds again; 3 kids (high school, university--physics, grad school--mechanical engineering); elected liaison for my TCC Nursing class last semester; I usually win my test question challenges with the professors; however, stuggling as an old dog to learn new tricks--doing things the Nursing way IS NOT the same as doing things the EMS way; the age range @ TCC is from 18 to 56, and I'm used to being in class with folks as old as my kids; study groups can confuse me, so don't think I'm stuck-up if I don't participate, I'm probably just stuck; I am very big on teamwork and am always thinking about my classmates--go Lucky 13!
