I'm waitlisted at my state school with little chance of getting in this year. I'm thinking of getting my EMT certification. I enjoy giving first aid ( I lifeguarded at a busy beach for a few summers) and its something I've always wanted to do. However, treading these forums, I've heard people talk about being an ER Tech. What is this? What do they do? But more importantly, would it impress an admissions committee more than being an EMT? I need a job next spring, preferibly in a clinical setting. Any suggestions? .......Please?
