skicrs Posted November 15, 2011 Share Posted November 15, 2011 I am a Paramedic with about 10 years of solid work experience (ED, Ambulance, Physician's office) and I have a B.S. in general science. I have experience in international EMS and have authored an article in "Emergency Medical Services" related to EMS in West Africa. Here is the deal....I am a recovering opiate addict and I am concerned about the temptations surrounding employment. I am very excited about my prospects of becoming a PA, but I want to have some valuable input concerning the pros and cons on following with my goal. Does anyone have any suggestions without going into the details of my addiction? I thought about nursing as well....but temptation is temptation. Regardless of nursing or PA I most likely will be around controlled substances if I would like to stay in the medical field (and I do). Respectively, Chad Smith, Paramedic, B.S.
