NREMT Refresher .
Another idea is to see if anyone near you has a refresher. Loyola Hospital outside Chicago has one & I've heard that it has helped with some others that had been having a difficult time with the exam process .
Passing the NR EMT
All I know is that this was the first time I took their test and I made sure I slept well the night prior to taking the written. But I've also been a medic since 1984 so I don't know what advice I can give in regards to doing anything different to pass the written. There were...
