Well it's that time for the duckies again. They are half way through their Paramedic class and the toll it takes is beginning to show. All the Paramedics out there know what I am talking about. It's hard....school, work, kids, significant other, mom, dad, dog, etc. Stuff begins to add up and your tired and you still have a million things to do. Dosages to memorize, rhythms to interpret, and case studies to conquer are always on the to-do list. But here is the kicker....what you end up with...that little red patch....comes with remarkable accomplishment. There are only a few professions that have such a noble purpose as ours. The duckies need to remember that purpose and use it as motivation to succeed. They are close to the finish line and it will only get closer. The reward is great....stay the course.
