Hi everyone, First post here. So here's my dilemma. I'm about to graduate from my dual nursing/paramedicine degree and I'm in a fortunate/unfortunate predicament of having multiple job offers. ED for nursing and AV/NSWA for paramedics (still waiting on QAS). I potentially want a career in both, and not limit myself in either, since burnout is real in either profession. I was happy until Saturday to settle with nursing first and then potentially get a job with a paramedic service after my graduate year. I happen to have a customer walk into my bar who is an AV paramedic and was telling me that AV are currently doing a massive intake and that potentially if I reject their offer (any paramedic job for that matter) I may not get a job with them in the near future. I was hoping to get nursing out of the way first since the job offer was my first choice hospital and department. I've always had a passion for paediatrics and I chose that hospital since it was the few in my area that did both adult and paeds ED. Also the skills I'd learn in ED would transfer well into paramedicine, whereas vice versa it would be a more difficult transition. I've sought advice from all my peers, my mentors, tutors and lecturers. Now I'm putting myself on an open forum which may assist in helping me come to a more concrete decision. So to anyone with a dual degree what did you choose first and why? To ED nurses, why should I choose that career path? To current paramedics working for AV/NSWA/QAS, why is it better than other services? Thank you for your time. Kind regards, MurseMedic P.S. My future aspirations are to be involved in disaster management or working with DFAT, and hopefully go into academia such as teaching/lecturing.
