- State Job

Well, I've been a paramedic with Louisiana DOC for about 2 months now, and I am not impressed. Although I find the expanded medical practice extremely satisfying and rewarding. Jumping through all the bureaucratic hoops is starting to drive me nuts. Add in the 1.5 hour commute? Eccchhh....

Pros:
Extended practice
POST certification
free certs/recerts
I can tell someone "NO"

Cons:
Shitty pay
micromanagement
Spend a lot of time cooped up in the ER

I put in my application. Let's see what happens.

PS - everyone still alive? Drop me a comment, folks.

Chance, I am alive. Alive with a new, still boring blog. I watched Dirty Work the other day, and when Don Rickles called Artie Lange 'baby gorilla', I thought of you.

Admit it, you've missed me.

MM,
Are you freaking kidding me? You want to work in Saudi Arabia???
Dude, have you lost your mind?

I didn't click on the link... Maybe it's porn and I shouldn't worry about your transferring that far out of State!

Bureacratic hoops, shitty pay and a 90 minute commute. The rewards of being a lifesaver are endless...

((cyber-hugs))
