Soooo…I’m an EMT now. No big deal.
Just kidding. There is no bigger deal.
It was around 3 years ago when I began to consider a career in EMS. I don’t know where that spark came from, but somehow it ignited in my mind one day during the winter of my sophomore year of college. A dream was born. Ever since then, I’ve kindled and nurtured the fire, feeding it with information, and feeling it grow.
Just over 4 months ago, I took the first step to making the dream come true by entering EMT school. And on Friday after passing my National Registry skills test, the process is almost complete. The last big challenge I have left is getting hired by the ambulance service. I started the application process yesterday and am anxiously waiting for the company to give me the word to move on to the next steps.
After that, the dream will no longer be a dream—it will be a reality.
I’ve still got a while (over a month) before the dream will be fully realized, but I’m still happy about passing all the tests and attaining the certification. You may now address me as Ms. Katie B., B.A., NREMT-B, Badass Bitch.
