Paramedic cert. vs. Nursing School
Hello, I'm taking pre-requisite classes right now towards either getting into a Paramedic Program or a Nursing program. My ultimate goal is to be a career Firefighter but was curious if anyone out there had any input on which path to choose. I currently volunteer with a department, I have three seasons of wildland fire under my belt, and I have a four year degree. I would like to make myself as qualified a candidate as possible so I'm considering further schooling. I realize the medic cert might be more relevant, but a nursing degree would offer better job security and still provide an excellent opportunity for patient care. If anyone has any experience or advice in either of these fields I would greatly appreciate your feedback!!
