The Finish Line

PCP Collar Dogs

So as of yesterday, I have officially finished all my licensing requirements for my PCP (primary care paramedic) license :D.  It was a long day, but a perfect day for an exam (there was a rain storm with wind warnings outside, aka plain miserable).  The practical exam consisted of three full scenario calls and one skills station.  The calls were very straight forward, and the evaluators were pleasant and did their best to ease our anxiety.  Needless to say, I had adrenaline pumping the whole day from 08:00-16:30.  I’ve never been so stressed, nervous, anxious, and excited for an exam before.  It felt like all that hard work since January 2009 had all come down to one exam.  That this was it, this was the big one.  I remember after my last call, I just crashed on the couch exhausted but happy to be done.  

So I guess technically the journey this blog was meant to capture has come to an end.  From the beginning 2.5yrs ago when one story lead me down this path, to now  (I’m standing here, still stunned and in disbelief).  From the little time I’ve been out on the streets, I know I have found my calling and absolutely love every moment of this profession.  I still feel the passion I had felt two years ago and I hope for it to stay for a long time to come.  

Does this mean it is the end for this blog?  The answer is no.  I plan to continue writing what I experience out on the streets, after all, the fun had only just begun.

I want to say a big thank you to all those who had been involved in helping me reach my goals (you know who you are).  I have met many amazing people along the way, and I can’t be more thankful.  Thank you!
