I'm a paramedic working in Australia, I have been for over 3 years. It's a great job and I'm glad I kinda fell in to it. I work in a large metropolitan city, mainly in the suburbs but we can end up almost anywhere!
It requires a 3 year bachelor degree and can be studied at universities all over Australia, some of them are double degrees with nursing.
I work a variety of shift lengths including during the day and over night.
Go ahead, ask me anything!
