Why I want to be a nurse
I have been in the medical field for the past 10 yrs. I have directly corresponded with nurses especially in the E.R. I have been impressed with the professional manor they have treated me and the patents that I bring them. It looks like a very gratifying job. I love to help people and I love to try to improve what is probably been a bad day for them.
Another big part of my decision to become a nurse is the money. Nurses make about double what I make as a paramedic and they do very similar tasks. Nursing takes place in a much more controlled environment. They are not out in the cold or hot weather treating patents and they are not on they side of busy highways. It is a much safer environment.
There are many job openings for nursing. There are many different places available to work. There are probably 500 nursing jobs for every 1 paramedic job. So you are more likely to find a job with out having to move across the country.
I absolutely love being a paramedic. I love emergency medicine. Upon completion of my nursing classes and after passing the state board exam I would like to work in an emergency department In the Rexburg / Idaho Falls area. I plan on continuing on and getting my bachelors degree in nursing and have considered going on to a nurse anesthetist school. Possibly Idaho State University. I understand they have just started that program there. I think I would enjoy this specialized nursing area. [continues]
