Bachelor of Health Care | Paramedic Nurse | full-time studies
As a Paramedic Nurse, you will help trauma patients or people who suddenly fall ill and need urgent care, both in and out of the hospital. You recognise and anticipate situations threatening the patient's life, and know how to act as the situation requires. In addition to alert tasks, your job will include non-urgent care: examining patients, mapping situations, and planning follow-up care.
The work of a Paramedic Nurse requires pressure tolerance, as well as the readiness to act consistently even in difficult and unexpected situations. In addition, good physical and mental workability is required at work. As a Paramedic Nurse, you must be able to make quick independent decisions based on researched information and care guidelines. Many paramedics work in ambulances, but you can also find work in, for example, a hospital emergency room or intensive care unit.
