A flight nurse is a registered nurse as well as a paramedic, and he/she rides around in a helicopter saving lives. I've been thinking about it a lot lately, and I believe that may be what I want to be when I grow up! I have three years in as a basic EMT, and I know that I have a passion for helping people in this way. Right now, I am an overpaid union- affiliated factory worker, and I want to keep droning on there while I train if I can. I know step one is to call for a ride- along, but maybe step .8 is to get opinions from people who are already doing it. So, if you ride in helicopters saving lives, how do you like it, and would you reccomend it to me?
