    Please wish me luck! I am really nervous! It's just the practical part and if I pass that then I can take the written test at a later date.

    GOOD LUCK!!! My dad has been a paramedic for like 25 yrs. He recently had to take the test because he had let his license lapse. It took them a long time but he said it wasnt too hard (then again, hes been doing it for 25 yrs.) You will do great!!

    Thank You. I will be leaving in an hour to practice and then take my test! Yikes!

    Yes, I want to work full time. If all goes well then I will go back to school to be a paramedic or intermediate. :)

    I have an EMT friend, Cousin and soon to be EMT brother. I cant get over how excited they get to go on a call. I razz my friend and cousin about them enjoying other peoples misfortunes. :shocked: It certainly takes a certain kind of person to be able to do it.

    Ok, well I'm done. Arg! That was hard. I can't even think straight anymore. I am pretty sure I failed two of four stations. I didn't get called back to re-test so I either really failed or really passed. You only get called back in to re-test if you fail one station. :shrug: :hair: :help: :doh: :GAAH:

    2-4 weeks. If its a postcard thats good, if its a big envelope thats bad. lol

    I forgot the head blocks when I did back boarding! :doh: Not sure if my examiner noticed or not. I also took a long time on my Medical and trauma assessments. I know I can't keep second guessing what I did but -> :GAAH: The testing started at 5:30 and ended at 10:30. Boy is my brain fried.

    Well, we will be waiting to hear the GOOD news. Just keep thinking good thoughts.
    It is our human nature to second guess ourselves. I am sure you did fine.

    Yes, I can. I need to pay another fee. But not as big as the original fee. My mom offered to pay it for me.

    I'm just discouraged. At least I know what to expect this time.

    So Sorry. i know how you feel...Been there Done that! The second time around was much easier for me because I wasn't sooo nervous. By that point I figured if I did it fine if not that was fine too. I'm sure you will do great the next time!
