Well it was a big day for Kalissa…she is so happy and so sad frustrated and so glad and so anxious and so well…everything.
Kalissa graduated at semester. Originally she was hoping to get into the nursing program but there wasn’t room and she didn’t make the cut to get into the program this January. So…she decided to go to paramedic school instead. That starts in July. Things were going to be nip and tuck and she has to have her EMT certification before she can do onto paramedic.
She found out today that things would be easier and that in fact things wouldn’t be so tight and getting to the paramedic program would be much easier. Great news right???
She also found out that she was accepted into the nursing program for fall.
What is a girl to do…paramedic…nursing? Now Kalissa works as a CNA at a local nursing home. She doesn’t mind it. If she continues to work there, they would pay for some of the schooling…only problem. The nursing school is 20 minutes down the road. Staying in NE Iowa when all her friends are moving away is a complete drag. Living with mom and dad would be even worse.
What’s a girl to do??
Going to be a paramedic would mean big town…college kids…new and exciting things to see do and experience. Paramedics also make very little money compared to nurses.
What’s a girl to do??? Nursing…paramedic. Paramedic…nursing. Small town…big city. Good pay…not so great pay. Get help with college tuition….not so much help.
Feel free on chiming in with some advice. She’s in the market for some.
