I'm currently in college majoring in nursing (going into sophmore year). I enjoy it very much, I love learning about medical biology.I want to be able to help treat and make sure a patient survives a trauma situation, like a bullet wound or explosion. (there are a lot of gunshot wound cases in my area) I'm sure emergency room nurses have to deal with this, and paramedics do too. Who is more qualified to deal with such situations, and who is more qualified overall? Would either be able to save the patient's life? (assuming it was a situation where that was possible)I'm trying to decide whether I want to continue my studies to become an RN or NP, or if I should go to EMT training or somehow try to do both. I want to be able to eventually work in an ER if I become a nurse, to help in such emergencies. Would I even be able to make a difference in saving the patient's life? What if I was one of the only ones there?
