i would like some advice. i am an EMT-B student right now, with a job as a CNA. i want to get my paramedic as well as my RN. cuz i would like to work in the ER as a RN. but still work as a medic couple times a week. what would you recomend doing first?? getting my paramedic then RN. or vise versa? and if i do my medic first would that take care of some pre-req's for my nursing?

If your goal is to work in the ER as a Nurse, you should definitely go straight into nursing school. You can then work as an RN and make good money, and if you wish to work as a paramedic you can get RN exempt, and work under your Nursing license on the ambulance. There may be a few skills or classes you need to take depending on your state. But going from RN to Paramedic is usually a month course tops. Paramedic to RN is a year course at least.
