Thanks to everyone who has shown me the ropes through the years. There have been so many of you, and so many ropes, too!
I have completed my Associate of Applied Science in Paramedicine. It has been a two year journey of education and experience with some of the most wonderful people. My teachers, clinical preceptors, and laboratory organizers have kicked my butt into shape. The paramedics on ambulances who had my back as they let me treat their patients had such grace and kindness as I tried to understand better how to do my job and take care of people.
I have been enjoying working for Emergency Medical Protection Services- a first responder organization- and First Medical Response- a private EMS provider. Now I hope for a place with 911. It would be a privilege. I hope I have listened and learned enough for them to let me start to learn some more… a lifetime’s journey awaits.
