Medical careers - December 11th 2010, 10:10 PM

I was curious if anyone here was thinking about or currently in a medical related feild or college.

I'm currently an EMT assist, getting my full license later this year. After HS I plan to get my Ass. in Para-medicine (paramedic), my Major in RN and my Master in NP (nurse practitioner).

So, anybody there?

I'm considering medical school. As I am just finishing up my first semester of university, I've realized that I excel in maths and sciences.

Seems interesting.

Although I do have a job now, I am still considering the nursing program at CSU.

I am planning on getting my paramedic next year in the Fall of 2011. Then immediately after, I am going to start clinicals for RN in Fall 2012. There is a slim chance that my start date for RN will be moved up and then I will probably be pulling my hair out.

You may need to go for a doctorate for the NP. Most states are making them switch really soon.

If the marks are high enough I'd go into either neurology or psychiatry. Dream job would be a neurosurgeon. Chances are they won't be high enough as it's ridiculously competitive so I have other routes that I think are on their way to work.
