Been an EMT for 13 years. Recent graduate…not recent but previous graduate from here and came back for paramedic school.
As a paramedic I can do drugs, give drugs to the patients, I can do cardiac, I can read a monitor, I can do more for my patient than I can as an EMT.
My parents like told me a long time ago that I shoulda’ went back to school; like I waited way too long, like I should have done it a long time ago; but they’re very proud of me no matter what I do.
I love helping people, I love getting up in the morning, going to my job and knowing that I make a difference; it just does something for me, it makes me feel like I’m doing a little bit of a difference even if it’s something really small like holding someone’s hand or a smile or something -- it changes the world.
