You can go two ways. You can go to the night class wich meets 2 nights a week for 4 hours and the class takes one year. Another option is taking the day class wich is only half a year, you go to class 2 days a week but for 8 hours. WSCC in sevierville has EMT also I would advise you to take it their over morristown campus, teacher is alot better and will get more hands on experiance.

I would like to let you know facts.. Become a nurse LPN make a heck of alot more money !!! If your married and you cherish your marriage.. do not become a EMT. You are doomed to cheat like all the other EMT and Paramedics !!! All the EMS are a bunch or cheaters and liars.. It is the truth. I would rather be a nurse anyday.. Better respect!!!

Or you can be a nurse, and try to run around and get in the pants of all the doctors in the hospital. Not everyone who rides on a ems bus cheats and lies honey, thats just your prospective. I guess their has never been a nurse to cheat and lie, hell get real. Put an LPN in the back an ems unit an let them work a code going 90 MPH down the road, or a 4 year old lying on the side of the road with 2-3 life threatning injurys, they would be lost. Save lifes or run around and be a doctors little bit**, you decide

I have been a paramedic for 13 years. My marriage is still as wonderful as it was before I became a paramedic. Not all paramedics and emt's cheat. You must have been scorned by one. Possibly two.
I do agree with you that nurses get more respect. Unsure why. We paramedics and emt's save the lives before they even get to the nurses and doctors.
I know many nurses who have cheated on there spouses. You will get cheaters in every field of work. Doesn't matter what field.
Sorry you were scorned by one but do not sit and place judgement on others. Come take a ride with us on a Friday or Saturday night and see what our job consists of. Doubt you will be able to handle it.

can anyone tell me anybody in any profession that cannot fool around on their spouse? that's right there isn't a single profession out there that doesn't give a person the chance to cheat on their spouse. it's all up to the person. if they make the choice to cheat on a spouse, it's them, not the prfession....

Be careful of judging other people. Not everyone is going to cheat on their spouses. It sounds like you had a personal experience with this, and if so then you have a right to be bitter about it, but that doesn't mean everyone does it. The only way you can know if everyone that is an EMT cheats is if you were the one they were cheating with--that sounds ridiculous, but so does your claim that they all cheat.

I personally would like to send a "Thank-you" to all the EMT's out there. They risk there own lives everyday to save those of others not to mention the ungodly hours that their job demands. You will not find a profession on this earth where the workers are perfect and sinless - not even in the church.

I'd say that all "metro" employees (police, fire, emts) have the opportunity to cheat more than the average Joe due to the nature of being away from home, at night, not having to be accountable for a big part of the "down time" (no pun intended). If an EMT works 7PM-7AM and the spouse works a normal day job.......he has all day to sleep, eat, and fool around without getting caught. In addition to that he/she are working in VERY close contact with the opposite sex!!! It can happen.

Alright, this is ridiculous. If you want to say something back to the one that pee'd you of fine. But don't stoop to their level by insulting all LPNs. I do a heck of alot more than run aroung being an MD's biotch. You're not being any more fair to us than she was to you. And I'd like to think that ovet the years I've saved a life or two myself. Yes, you are trained to handle emergencies. But LPNs don't spend a year in class learning how to get doctors in the linen closet. We are trained to spot problems before they turn into code status. Just wanted to get that off my most impressive chest....

Nurses RULE and ems wishes they could be us. You guys are losers.. I have lived in morristown all my life !! Ems is a political joke. I still have yet had any of you to tell me "ONE" person in morristown EMS who hasn't cheated.. Another thing, I as a nurse could run circles around you when it comes to caring for a life. Most nurses can. Factually tell me one doc in morristown worth a crap to be with.. But it is all good.. Just love knowing i still got what it takes to get a RISE out of ya "EMS"... HA HA !!!

it kinda falls in line like this, the emt saves them in the field, the dr. works on them in the er, and the nurses take care of them after the dr. is done. everybody is important in the role of saving lives. sometimes the order will change in the way the duties are performed, but none the less, the main goal is to save lives. i know some emts that don't cheat on there wives, i know nurse that don't cheat on their husbands, i know doctors that don't cheat on their wives. to group a small portion of people in the cheaters catagorie is pretty much ridicules and isn't fair to each's profession. if you wanna see a bunch of cheaters, go work in a factory! i've seen more wedding vows broken in a factory than i have anywhere else, so why is everyone throwing stones at the nursing and emt professions? anybody can cheat on their spouse in any profession, not just in the medical field. so instead of throwing stones and comparing the various jobs, keep in mind, the main goal is to saves lives!

This is for facts... Running circles around EMTS & Paramedic's what a joke. I don't run. I don't hide behind a Doctor When The Sh#t hits the fan. I don't need to tell you how good i am. I do my job 24 hrs at a time and go home. Most Emt's and Paramedic's need to work 2 or even 3 jobs to support there family. As far as I know an LPN is a one year program. have you completed any extra classes like ACLS, PALS, PEEP, PHTLS, ITLS, or even kept up your CPR. ALL your jaw jacking sounds to me like you had a fling with someone in EMS and they left you heart broke. Sorry for that. have a great day and remember ...NO cares how much You know. Till they know how much you care...
