If you are licensed or certified, your professional suffix indicates WHY you can write what you are writing. However, other degrees or certifications shouldn't be placed there. Its what you are licensed to do, really. For example, nurses are licensed to practice and normally its the RN that allows them to practice. If they have a BScRN, that's their degree, not their license(i.e. you can get through university but flub your licensure). In a previous life I earned a BSc, MBA as well as being a ,licensed RT. I wrote RT on the charts and the BSc, MBA were left off.
I find it interesting that healthcare covets their degrees so now I place BSc, MBA on my business cards. Personally I hate it but its a work culture thing. If I placed the alphabet soup of letters for every course I took over the years it would look pretty stupid.
does anyone add EMT to their name when signing?
For example: Robert H. Alfano, EMT-B
If so when do you write it?
To me it just doesn't seem to be significant enough of a certification to add but some people at my squad write it...
