You can absolutely keep your ACP license, but the employer will restrict you to a PCP scope.

The NOCPs are not a national scope of practice, the NOCPs are a national training standard. By creating a uniform training standard for paramedics in Canada allows people to move between provinces, taking training in one, and becoming licensed in another. Through this system, you can take an accredi...

Adam, get over yourself.

I never said PCPs in BC were "subpar," I said, "the difference in breadth of knowledge and understanding that the average PCP in BC has is noticeable when compared to the average PCP in Ontario." There is a difference. And yes, I am licensed to work in Ontario.

Adam, let me assure you that spending 4 months at the JI is not comparable to spending 1-2 years in a college PCP program. The difference in breadth of knowledge and understanding that the average PCP in BC has is noticeable when compared to the average PCP in Ontario. We really shouldn't be proud o...

Initially as a hiring station, I'd be looking into Merritt, Princeton, Ashcroft, Pemberton, Gibsons. There is a decent enough call volume in those places that while you won't usually be "busy," there is enough work that you'll actually get a paycheque.

If you're already licensed in Ontario, getting a BC license will be a piece of cake. What you will want to ensure is that you get an IV endorsement on your BC PCP license. If you're not currently IV trained, there are stand alone courses you can take here to gain IV on your license. It affects pay a...

If Mom-to-be wants you to help, fly at it. That being said, you're not going to qualify as a "medical professional" in this setting. Becoming a registered Midwife is a 4 year university program. Trust me when I tell you that the 2-3 hours you spent talking about emergency childbirth and neonatal res...
