Just about ready to leave for the Health Connector office. Again. I did get a reply to my Facebook comment and sent them the information they wanted - and more. Their reply? Basically "OK, thanks. We've passed this on.". I think is will best be deal with by an in your face a face to face discussion.

Got back from my surgery follow-up appointment. Everything is perfect, I go for a baseline Dexa Scan on Monday. Back to work half days on Feb 3rd for a week and then I can return full time.

I may be making a minion cake for my neighbour's great-grandson.

I finished my niece's scarf. A month after Christmas and the day before her birthday. The only problem is she is working way up North where she could use it but I don't know how to get it to her before the weather is still bad.

I'm cooking dinner and wondering why my PS3 keeps not connecting to the internet until I reboot my router. Stupid thing.

Any part of the medical field is more difficult to enter. To become a paramedic you have to go to EMS school first. That is basically learning first aid. Get a job as EMS and work for about one year. Then you can apply for paramedic school. That is any where of 18 months to 2.5 or 3 years. Then if you want to continue on to PA, you have to have so many years under your belt as an active paramedic and a BS or Masters degree. No wonder there is a shortage of nurses and doctors.
This isn't the case everywhere. The primary hospital system and the community college here teach LPNs and RNs; they can go on to get bachelor's, master's and PhDs in nursing at a university, but they don't have to. Nurses specialize like doctors do, so they don't have extensive training in every specialty.

Also, here you don't have to be an EMS or paramedic to become a PA. In fact, I don't understand that reasoning. Most PA jobs aren't in emergency, so why would that training and experience be a prerequisite?

The medical school where I used to work offers a Master of Physician Assistant program. You need a bachelor's degree to get in, but it doesn't have to be in a medical field.
