Hi, I have lots of questions about paramedic work, so would any qualified paramedics please message me if you don't mind.
Basically, I am almost a third year student nurse (I do not want to drop out as that would be a massive waste of my time, effort, throwing away a degree etc).
I don't think I definitely don't want to be a nurse but I think id definitely enjoy paramedic work a hell of a lot more (mainly due to hating ward work and i think id have to be a little bit higher up such as a specialist nurse, practice nurse, ECP before I enjoyed my role) and have often thought about it but time has just went on and on and i've heard lots of different things like nursing can take you down a lot more avenues than paramedic work.
But I still think being a paramedic looks more interesting.
I'm really confused about what to do, I know unfortunately there is no bridging programme but I wouldn't want to start all over from square one.
Can any paramedics may be inbox me or comment below the pros and cons of the job and if you think I should go for it or stick with nursing.
(I know that the pay is better for nurses aswell but I really think paramedics should be paid the same)
Sorry if this message reads badly my head is very confused!!
I dunno if this is a case of just thinking the grass is greener on the other side or if it actually is!!
(Also I am maybe wanting to migrate at some point so don't know if its better to be a nurse in other countries)
Any paramedics please inbox me :)
