Lots of healthcare experience in one field or a little in multiple fields?

Recommended Posts

Most pre-pa patient care experience professions will have a limited scope of practice.

I work as an EMT right now but cant stand the pay and long hours.  I may have opportunities in which I can work in other fields such as nutrition/dietetics or mental health. 

I am approaching a year with averaging ~50hrs per weak as an emt.

If you like it, lots of time in one area is probably fine. If you don’t like it, switch. Try to pick an area where you deal with patients fairly directly and see a variety of disease states. My best friend in PA school did mental health. We also have RDs in our classes.

Good luck!
