Guess who?
Guess who talked to a whole bunch of people from the ambulance service, UTAS Health Faculty and DHHS?

Guess who found out she can enrol in the Bachelor of Paramedic Practice on a Provisional licence?

Guess who thusly got her drivers licence sorted today?

Guess who just finalised her application to UTAS?


I'm excited about this. I ran around like a headless chook today, talking to people, getting the infos, getting things done. Suddenly I'm motivated, I feel like what I do actually matters. It's the first time I've felt that way in ages.

I'm going to try to get a job shelving at Coles or Woolies to supplement my freelance income from here on in. I don't even mind the idea of that. Heck, I'll even do checkout if I have to, though I'd rather lift and stack heavy things. ;) I'll also be getting my 50 logged hours of driving practice down ASAP. Technically I'm on an L2 licence for the next nine months, but today I discovered that my (hypothetical) employer can help me fast-track that. Things are actually working out!

Fabulous! How exciting!

Really sad to read about your recent worries but - hey I am i nEXACTLY the same position. Same with the struggle to move sideways because there is no sideways. I am still not sure where I am going but I know it won't be animals.

Good luck! Let us know how things go:) so you are applying to apprentice and they teach you on the job while you study?

good luch!!!!

I've had two friends go into, and leave, EMS/ambulance services. They love the job, but it comes with shocking moments that they found too difficult to deal with.

I doubt it would be more than you could handle -- I just imagine it will be helpful to know what's coming (unlike my friends), the good and the bad.
