Tomorrow I test for the NREMT-Basic.  Here are the two patches I’m trying for.  I’ve put a lot of time and effort (as has EVERYONE who has ever studied for this exam) and I’m hoping for the best.  With any luck, I’ll be able to report back in roughly 24 hours from now that I passed, and that I’m watching purple unicorns fly overhead in formation.  Okay, maybe just that I passed, but hey, who WOULDN’T want to see purple unicorns flying in formation?!!


Banner Day

This has been an AWESOME day for me.  I finally got state approval for my National Registry test this morning, and to top it off, I got a call from The Happy Medic and acceptance into the First Responders Network, a blog network of EMS, Fire, and Police peeps.  I have to say this has been one of the most rewarding days I’ve had in a LONG time, and I’ve only been up about 4 hours!

That being said, anyone with sure-fire wins on studying for the NREMT, please let me know what they are in the comments.  I want to pass this thing first time around!
