Lots of folks do a basic, and go straight to an A program without working. When you get hired, that will be apparent in your resume and no one will give a shit, because you learn 90% of how EMS really works once you start working anyways. Pretty sure you were working illegally at your private company in texas. In the state of texas, you must have BOTH your national license and state license in order to work. As you said, the company was sketchy as hell, so this confirms it. So at the end of the day, if you didnt get a state license from WEE WOO Ambulance Boo Bus T-Shirt you were originally from, more than likely you would have had to go through emt school all over again. If you now have a state license and you decide to move back to texas, then there is an appeals process to get the texas state license, just go through the texas department of state health services.

Even if its hard to afford right now, just suck it up and get your paramedic certification. In the long run, its much better for your career, and it looks way better on your resume. Companies and agencies are more willing to hire medics than emt-b and aemt. If you truly want a career in EMS, try your best to work for a fire department, volly or full time. Private companies truly do not give a f**k about their employees, they will work you to death. Fire agencies have better pay, better hours, WEE WOO Ambulance Boo Bus T-Shirt benefits, and generally care more about their employees (usually). Additionally, most fire department will hire MEDICS (again, medics will get hired waaaayyyy more easily than the lower levels) and send you to a fire academy. ou worked for a shitty company, and guess what? Everyone has at one point in time with their career. So just take the experience as what it was, and keep working hard to better yourself and to further your career. Strive to learn your trade and be the best that you can be

What you’re saying is pretty common, and the language you’re using seems to point to impostors syndrome, which I’m sure everyone is somewhat aware of. I think it’s just amplified since you worked for a shitty service that didn’t challenge you to not only hone what you were taught, but expand on it under pressure to find out what works and what you throw out the window. If you ask me, it’ll come back during the AEMT course, if you want, you can look back at old notes or your textbook if you didn’t sell it like everyone else. I’m sure you’ll do fine in your AEMT! I feel like I need to know everything off the top of my head to be a good healthcare worker, but I know that’s impossible and I’m just being harsh on myself. WEE WOO Ambulance Boo Bus T-Shirt I’m excited for the chance to keep learning and I’m hoping I can find some comfort in knowing that my classmates are there to learn just as much as I am, not because they already know everything! Thanks for your input; I appreciate it.
