As the title stats I am currently looking for some good advice for achieving my long term goal of becoming a PA. I am currently a 2 year Firefighter/EMT who is unhappy with his job of being a firefighter but I do have to give credit to the job cause without it I would of never realized how much I enjoy the medical side. Since I have been an EMT I have been throughly enjoying helping out patients and caring for them cause it may sound lame but it warms my heart to do these things and to see the patients smile after you just got done helping them. Now the reason I am on this forum asking my question is cause currently I am a 22 year old male turning 23 in November and I am trying to figure out what would be the best route in getting into PA school. Right now I am thinking that hopefully getting my associate degree in Nursing will land me a job in a hospital and while working in the hospital I can finish up my last years on getting my BSN through a hospital tuition assistant program. Now my question would be do you guys/gals believe achieving a degree in nursing would be a wise decision in getting into PA school or would I be wasting my time? What would be my best course of action into achieving my long term goal of becoming a PA? Thanks and I appreciate all the advice I receive.
