Sean Barnes replied to Just a Medic's discussion Medic Pay at Vanderbilt or Opryland

Sean Barnes commented on Setla Film Productions's group Chronicles of EMS
"I'm very interested to start watching this series. I've often thought about doing something like this, but I lack the know-how. I really hope this accurately represents how EMS truly is and doesn't just show trauma and cardiac arrests."

Sean Barnes replied to medicmonkey's discussion flight rn - np? in the group Paramedic - RN
"I don't know where you are currently living, but I'm in Nashville, TN and Vanderbilt University Medical Center has a top-rated air ambulance system. Most of the RNs who work there are paramedics and NPs. It's not a requirement, but…"

Sean Barnes replied to John W. Magyar's discussion VOLUNTEER/RURAL EMS - Is it becoming an endangered species? in the group Advocates for EMS
"I got my start with a volunteer ambulance service that not only covered an urban area but also a large rural area as well. About 10 years ago, they decided that in order to better service the area they should go paid. Since their decision response…"

"Back in 1997 the DOT and NHTSA issued an "EMS Adgenda for the Future" which outlined the educational direction that they intended for us to take. It was a rather long report, but I'll give you the Reader's Digest version of the…"

Hey Sean! I did not realize that you were my friend on here. Guess what you were my charge nurse during clinicals!!!! Last semester. Around November 09. How crazy is that. I was wondering why when I met you you looked familar! What a small world. How are things going at the Hill? I took my NREMT on Dec 17th two days after Practicals, and passed on the first go with only 67 questions. I started working for Rural Metro as an EMT-IV at the Spring Hill Fire Department. I knew I would love this field but I did not realize ho much I would love it. Hope all is well. Talk to you soon! Jenn
