Medic1, I know you are just opening up my mind. And trust me, I have thought about them. This is why I am looking at more on an outpatient setting. As far as the CPR, I had to get certified by the American Heart Association/Red Cross. I have no problem throwing my butt out of my chair to the ground to perform chest compressions. When I was getting certified the instructor asked the same question, "are you sure your able to do this"?. I told him, "let me show you and then ask me that". I know there will be a whole bunch of other things to think about and remember once I am working in the field but just because there are barriers doesn't mean I can't break through them or find a way around them. Thank you for your concern and insight. It means alot.

Becky,
