Mass Casualty Incident[edit]

Saw that you're looking for someone to write an MCI page...would be interested in taking an initial crack at it if you're still looking.Frmatt (talk) 06:01, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

Not to worry[edit]

Just keep up the good work in school. Things here are being taken care of. Good luck with your exams! Emrgmgmtca (talk) 11:58, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

Paramedics in Germany[edit]

I just completed a general 'tidy up' of Paramedics in Germany. It is already rated at 'B'. I had forgotten that I had already worked on it, so not much work required. I have asked both WinnieMD and Sebastian to see what they can do about finding us some photos that are within guidelines. I have no shortage of vehicle photos, but I would like to be able to add shots of German paramedics doing their work. I've also invited Sebastian and re-invited Winnie to join the Task Force. This takes the work on Emergency medical services around the world and Paramedics around the world as far as I can. I won't touch either Emergency medical services in the United Kingdom or Paramedics in the United Kingdom, because every time I do, someone reverts the work, and I don't feel like getting involved in an edit war. Those two articles are essentially lists, and are rated as 'Stubs', but apparently someone likes them that way, so who am I to argue? The end result is that so far, I have either written or made major revisions to 22 articles within the Task Force mandate. One of those has achieved GA, another is about to be put forward for GA (being copyedited now), and of the balance, there is nothing below a 'B', and very little below 'B' 'mid'. There are a couple of other projects that I'm contemplating (such as New Zealand) but those are awaiting responses and permissions. I'd like to be able to add a meaningful article on the KKK-1822 standard, and I'd like to start to create a section on EMS vehicles as well. I'm trying to get Sebastian involved because he loves navboxes, and I think it would be nice to ultimately tie all of the Task Forces articles together using a good coordinated collection of navboxes for ease of navigation and reference. I'm also thinking that with him helping to develop a Task Force specific Infobox for some of our articles (primarily Ems and Paramedics around the world at this point, but who knows, potentially some form of 'branding' for Task Force articles). In the meantime, if there is anything else specific that you'd like me to have a look at, let me know. Otherwise, I will just start grabbing stuff at random. It's a shame about the British articles, though.Emrgmgmtca (talk) 18:58, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

Paramedics in Canada[edit]

Where have you disappeared to??? Paramedics in Canada is now completely redone and brought up to standard. Sent to WPMED for re-eval. Was a 'Stub', should be a 'B'. Still waiting for word on Australia. I'll probably start Germany next week, if Winnie and Sebastian have been able to find and upload some stuff. Cheers! Emrgmgmtca (talk) 18:28, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Paramedics in Australia[edit]

This article has been thoroughly rewritten and reorganized. Tons of content, images, references, links added. I think I'm finally mastering the Style Guide! This has been submitted for re-evaluation as a 'B' article...we'll see where that goes! Not sure what I'm going to take on next. Cheers!Emrgmgmtca (talk) 18:17, 12 November 2008 (UTC)

Still waiting for the eval on Paramedics in Australia. I've decided that my next project will be Paramedics in Canada. In addition, I have asked both WinnieMD and Sebastian to help gather content and upload photos so that I can do Paramedics in Germany next. Given that there ARE no Paramedics in France, I will be proposing later today that the article be deleted. I have also sent requests to Wellington Free Ambulance and St John Ambulance New Zealand for permission to use information and upload photos from their websites. These will be used to take the stub articles about these two services to a much higher level, and then to create Emergency medical services in New Zealand and Paramedics in New Zealand. I'll let you know how I make out with the permissions. I've done this a couple of times now, and the permissions are usually pretty quick to come, and the services pleased to receive the attention. Cheers! Emrgmgmtca (talk) 11:26, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Paramedics in the United States[edit]

I've given this article a good workover, and essentially redone it so that it is more consistent with the other work. I believe that as it stands now, it should receive a 'B', and it has been submitted for re-eval. Haven't heard anything on 9-1-1 yet. Cheers! Emrgmgmtca (talk) 17:32, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Found out that the article requires additional work (primarily copyediting) which I am currently working on. Also 9-1-1 made B High Top. I've asked Chaoticfluffy to give it a thorough copyedit prior to submitting it for GA status. Just keeping you posted. Emrgmgmtca (talk) 15:35, 10 November 2008 (UTC)
Okay...Paramedics in the United States is now a 'B Low Mid'. Chaoticfluffy has taken on the copyeditng for 9-1-1, prior to submission for a GA nomination. Not sure what I'm going to take on next....probably something else from the Paramedics queue. Emrgmgmtca (talk) 21:55, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

9-1-1 and Good Samaritan law[edit]

Be advised that Air ambulance is now a 'B' Mid. 9-1-1 is awaiting re-eval, but hasn't been done yet. I have just finished a complete rework of Good Samaritan law, and submitted that for eval as well. I think both are likely to get 'B' ratings, 9-1-1 as 'B Top'. Just to let you know, I am going to be disappearing offline for about two weeks. I have a teaching commitment at a university in another province, and so will be over on the Atlantic coast, enjoying the fresh air and the waves. I'll let you know when I'm back. I may get a chance to look in on things, but won't likely have time to do much editing, between lecture prep and reading papers! In the meantime, you might want to give some thought to where I can help out most as a next step. See you when I get back. Cheers! Emrgmgmtca (talk) 16:54, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Just letting you know, 9-1-1 is interim rated as a C High, the only thing apparently holding it back from a B is additional references being added. I will attempt to do this when I get back, or anyone else who wants to try is welcome to jump in. Also, to my complete surprise, Good Samaritan law has been nominated for GA status by someone over at WPLAW! Any support that you can manage to drum up for that would also be appreciated. See you when I get back! Emrgmgmtca (talk) 11:50, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
Just to let you know...I'm back! A couple of weeks of waves and fresh salt air was wonderful...even at this time of year! Well, Good Samaritan law got its GA status (pardon my crowing!). I've reworked and expanded 9-1-1, and resubmitted it for 'B' consideration. Hope school's going well for you! Cheers! Emrgmgmtca (talk) 17:37, 6 November 2008 (UTC)


Air ambulance and 9-1-1[edit]

Just to let you know, Air ambulance is complete and has been re-evaluated to a 'B' Mid. I have just completed a total rewrite of 9-1-1. Turned out to be more work than I thought at first. I'm pretty satisfied with the result, and I've submitted it for re-eval as well. I'm hoping that it will get a 'B' also. Look this stuff over and let me know what you think. Cheers! Emrgmgmtca (talk) 17:55, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

U.S. and CEN[edit]

Just to let you know, Emergency medical services in the United States, and CEN 1789 (the article on standards for European ambulances) have both been re-evaluated in the B Mid range. I am waiting to hear from User:Owain.Davies regarding a proposed collaboration to bring the U.K. article up to the standard, but apart from that, all of the articles in the EMS by country category are now at a B Mid or higher. Actually, we've succeeded in moving a total of 16 articles, most initially rated as Start or Stub, to the B Mid or higher range. The project is going well from my point of view. User:Chaoticfluffy who turns out to be a first class copyeditor and an EMT, has been invited to join the taskforce, and has accepted. My next project is going to be trying to pull together the assortment of stubs and starts related to air ambulance, and put them into a single, well written article. I'm thinking that after that is done, I may start to see what can be done to clean up and improve 9-1-1. Just so you're aware, after this week, I may not be online much for a couple of weeks...I have an out of province teaching assignment to fulfill. If I disappear, don't worry! I'll also leave note on my userpage. Emrgmgmtca (talk) 10:26, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Emergency Medical Dispatcher[edit]

Hi Medicellis! Your article is now official rescued from deletion, expanded, photos added, and fully cited. It is now rated as 'B' High. Hope you like it. Happy to be of service! Emrgmgmtca (talk) 18:18, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Hey, wow very good job. Makes my original article seem like human feces....lol. Thanks for the help Medicellis (talk) 18:42, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

United States[edit]

Emergency medical services in the United States is now essentially complete. It has been completely reworked, and the level raised substantially. I have also gone over all of the articles that I've worked on to ensure that they meet the MoS standards, as I understand them. I have also done some tweaking to CEN 1789. Both articles are now resubmitted for reeval at a 'B' level. Someone managed to sort out the problem with the Emergency medical services in Australia linking, and it has now been evaluated at a 'B' level. This will mean that all of the articles that I have worked on will be at the 'B' level, including your target project, Emergency medical services. The only article from the original set that remains is the Emergency medical services in the United Kingdom article, and frankly, I'm still a bit reluctant to touch it after the last time, despite the fact that it's rated as a 'stub'. Looking at it in a LOT of detail, there doesn't seem to be much there other than lists (and I distinctly remember being told that Wikipedia was NOT a collection of lists). I'll have to give it some thought, and decide whether to 'take the bull by the horns', or just continue to ignore it and move on to the Paramedic by country articles. Oh well! Emrgmgmtca (talk) 17:33, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

Australia[edit]

EMS in Australia is now essentially complete, and has been submitted for evaluation. Once again, a little problem, in that there is no 'Emergency medical services in Australia' title...that points to 'Paramedics in Australia'; a whole different thing! I'd like to rename the article and take the link away from 'Paramedics' in the interest of consistency for the series of articles, but I don't yet know how to do this. If you could help, that would be great. I am also awaiting reevals on Netherlands and Canada, which should bring them up to a 'B' also. The only two articles in the Emergency medical services by Country group that I haven't touched yet are the U.S. and the U.K.. I guess I'll be starting on those next. In the meantime, of the 12 articles in the series, 9 are 'B' level, and the other three have been submitted for 'B' level. Just letting you know my progress...but actually, I'm pretty pleased!!!Emrgmgmtca (talk) 18:06, 30 September 2008 (UTC)


Israel[edit]

Emergency Medical Services in Israel is now essentially complete, and has been submitted for evaluation. I've run into one problem on this; as you know, the titles are case-sensitive, and the title used in the other articles 'Emergency medical services in...' is currently directed to an article entitled 'Magen David Adom'. Now MDA DOES run the EMS system in Israel, but this article involves a whole bunch of other stuff, including their blood bank operation, the international arguments over their symbol, their relationship with the ICRC, etc.. The article is useful and should be kept, but the new article is ACTUALLY ABOUT EMS in Israel. I'm not really sure how to sort this out, and I'm hoping that you can help with this, just so we have some consistency. I won't get a chance to look at this at all for the next several days, and when I do get back, my next project will be writing 'Emergency medical services in Australia' and then getting that up to a 'B'. Cheers! Emrgmgmtca (talk) 17:20, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Hong Kong[edit]

Emergency medical services in Hong Kong is now essentially complete. It turned out quite well, and I have submitted it for evaluation. I'll probably look to see what can be done with Israel next, then Australia. I'm leaving U.S. and U.K. until last. Both are still currently rated as 'stubs'. I'm reluctant to touch the U.K. article, because the couple of times I've started on it to bring it into line with the 'B' rated articles (which was my goal for ALL of the 'country' articles, and we're GETTING THERE...lol) someone keeps undoing my edits. Obviously while it isn't rated very highly, they apparently like it the way it is...dunno what to do about that! The other challenge will be doing a generic U.S. article that doesn't manage to upset those in each of the 246 models of service delivery and levels of certification! Oh well...I'll get to those two eventually. Cheers Emrgmgmtca (talk) 18:11, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Canada[edit]

Canada is now complete and submitted for reeval. I believe that both it and the Netherlands article should receive 'B' ratings. Haven't decided which one to push on with next. Cheers Emrgmgmtca (talk) 12:18, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Netherlands[edit]

Well, Norway is complete and resubmitted for reeval. I'm thinking that it meets the 'B' requirements. I picked up some useful information and so have added a new article, 'Emergency medical services in the Netherlands' which I think is also likely to get a 'B', and so has been submitted. Emrgmgmtca (talk) 18:21, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

More Progress[edit]

Well, I've managed to get both Emergency medical services in Italy and in France promoted to 'B' articles. Canada and Norway will be next! I've also added a whole section on Models of Care, suitably cited and all...to the Main Emergency medical services article. I don't know where you're hiding...lol...but I don't know how to get anything past a 'B', and I think we're ready to nominate the main article for Good Article status. Let me know what you think... Cheers Emrgmgmtca (talk) 18:15, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

Progress[edit]

Hi again! Well, the South African EMS people seem pleased. Internally, the South Africa article has been reclassified to a 'B', and I have just finished expanding and extensive referencing of Emergency medical services in France, and have submitted that for reclassification as well. On reflection, I think that I am going to focus on getting the existing stuff all up to a 'B' before I push on and attempt to write Hong Kong or improve the other articles that I haven't touched yet. Emrgmgmtca (talk) 15:07, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

South Africa[edit]

Just to let you know, I managed to contact the Head of Training at West Cape Metro EMS in Capetown, and he has provided a whole set of photos (with licenses) for the article, which I have added. There is one odd-sized photo, that I don't know how to resize. He has also agreed to check the article for errors, omissions, etc.. They were pleased to be asked. This article is great...the best so far. Emrgmgmtca (talk) 20:23, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Emergency medical services in South Africa[edit]

Hi Medicellis! You've been pretty quiet over the last couple of weeks; I am assuming you've been busy with school. Just to let you know, the edit and rewrite of the above article is now substantially complete. It could do with some photos to pretty it up, but usable South African EMS photos are a little hard to find. You know, it might not be a bad task force project for someone to start contacting various EMS systems around the world and asking them to upload appropriate photos (medics working, vehicles) from their system, along with the appropriate permissions for their use. That would provide us with a great deal of new and fresh material for article illustrations. The next article that I will take on will be Hong Kong. You will also be pleased to note that all of the EMS by country pages that I have done have been classified, and have all gotten a 'C' rating, with the exception of Germany, which received a 'B'. The challenge with getting most of them above a 'C' is typically the citations, and the challenge there is language. My intent is to keep adding to all of them, until a 'B' minimum is achieved for each. Since all of these feed into the main page, in my opinion the higher quality they are, the higher the main page will be rated, in terms of the information that it provides access to. Treated collectively, they would already provide a pretty darn good reference source for a paramedic or EMT student doing a project comparing EMS systems, and it wlll get even better! Emrgmgmtca (talk) 09:56, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Emergency medical services[edit]

Just to let you know, I think that I've done pretty much everything that I can do with that article. It's certainly clearer and cleaner, and it reads a LOT better. I'm still waiting though, for someone to kill those dead citations, since they go to a reflist, and I have no idea how to edit one of those. Once that has happened, I think that it's probably ready for GA nomination. Let me know what you think. Emrgmgmtca (talk) 09:56, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

References and See Also[edit]

I have validated or invalidated all of the References. These were on a reference list, which I don't know how to edit yet. I have attached a complete list of findings on the discussion page, asked for someone to make the listed edits, and updated the 'to do' list. I also took the liberty of validating all of the See Also links, and they are all fine. Cheers. Emrgmgmtca (talk) 14:21, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

CEN 1789[edit]

Just to advise; I have just created my own very first article. CEN 1789 discusses the European standard for ambulance design and performance (similar to KKK 1822). All in all, I think it has come out pretty well, but as always, I'd value your opinion. It is linked to the EMS by country pages for several of the European countries, and to our Group. Also, as you requested, I have started looking at the main Emergency medical services page. I have generally cleaned up, edited for flow, expanded, and added citations to the Strategies for delivering care section, and I have removed the tag and entered my work on the list in the discussions page. Just wanted to let you know. Emrgmgmtca (talk) 17:14, 10 September 2008 (UTC)

Emergency Medical Service in Norway[edit]

Just to let you know, the Norway page is now pretty much complete. It would benefit from additional input from Norwegian users (do we HAVE Norwegian users???) and there are a couple of really nice photos that I've found on the web that I'm not really sure how to get approval to use. At any rate, this page has now been expanded a bit, some citations and references added (and the tag removed), and reformatted to follow the same template as the others that I've done (and I think I'm getting better at following the MoS). Let me know what you think!!! Emrgmgmtca (talk) 14:06, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

Emergency Medical Service in Italy[edit]

Hello again!!! Just to let you know, I now realize how importantly the Manual of Style is considered here, and I am trying to ensure that I use it correctly. It is somewhat different from the writing styles that I am accustomed to (primarily MLA and APA), so I don't expect to get it all down properly, right away. Please feel free to look over my work, and if you see any 'bloopers' or have any suggestions for improvement, please let me know. In the meantime, the "Emergency medical service in Italy" page is substantially complete, and hopefully we will begin to receive contributions from other users to fill in any gaps. I am now moving on to "Emergency medical service in Germany" as my next editing project. I will start out by getting the spelling, grammar and punctuation right for English-speaking readers in the existing article. Once that is complete, I will probably attempt to rearrange the material into the format that I have used on the other EMS by country pages. I have some other stuff happening in my real life (yes...lol...I DO have one!) so completing this is probably going to take a couple of days. Cheers. Emrgmgmtca (talk) 11:43, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

The Work Continues[edit]

Hi Medicellis!!! I hope that I'm not bugging you unnecessarily, but my impression up to this point is that you are sort of supervising this work. To let you know, I pushed forward and attempted to apply the same template to Emergency medical service in the United Kingdom. I had no sooner finished the edits when someone by the name of OwainDavies undid the whole thing. I left him a message, explaining what I was up to and asking him to revert it to the work that I had saved. His response (friendly enough) was that the format that I was using didn't meet Wikipedia standards. It looked to me like a good, accessible format for someone attempting to do actual research, but looking at his Wiki credentials, he seems to know what he's talking about, so now I am frankly confused. I have no interest or desire to get into an 'edit war' with anyone (life is just too short) and he seems to feel proprietary about that page (who knows? Perhaps he wrote it!). So for now I am just going to leave that page as he seems to want it, and move on to expand the Emergency medical service in Italy stub. Eventually I will finish the rest, and his will be the only one that doesn't follow the format, but if it's okay with him, it's fine with me! My only motivation is to make the sections on EMS and Paramedics, and my other area of interest Emergency Management, really shine, and I fully realize that I am not going to achieve that on my own, nor am I the only one with ideas on how this work should be done. I could, however, use a little bit of advice and guidance from someone who has been at this longer. Let me know what you think. Emrgmgmtca (talk) 18:16, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Emergency medical service in France[edit]

Hi Medicellis! I've just finished a major re-write of this page for content, accuracy, spelling and grammar. Let me know what you think. I've taken the liberty of using exactly the same heading format for this page that I used for the Canadian page, with an intent of re-doing all of the country pages to precisely the same format, for ease of both reference and navigation. (I've decided that I'm going to do the country pages, both EMS and Paramedic, first) Hopefully, others will jump in and add additional information, and I will keep it on my watch list. BTW I couldn't believe it, but some idiot actually went and vandalized the Paramedic page! The bot caught it and undid it. Do you get a LOT of that sort of thing around here? Just curious... Ah well! On to the next one!!! Emrgmgmtca (talk) 11:39, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Emergency medical service in Canada[edit]

Hi Once Again, I've just taken the time to completely rewrite this piece, expanding it from a stub to a half decent article, correcting for spelling, grammar, content and accuracy, and ensuring that everything is properly cited. I've also added a series of links to other Wikipedia pages for Canadian EMS services, and another list of links that are appropriate to those seeking more information...typically paramedic associations and that sort of thing. I will give this some more thought and see whether there is anything else that I might want to add, and any usable pictures to illustrate, but all in all, I'm pretty happy with the result! I'd welcome your feedback when you have a chance to have a look. What I propose to do next is to just wander around all of the Task Force associated pages, and to either clean up or rewrite to raise the standard, one at a time, as I see the opportunity. Emrgmgmtca (talk) 14:14, 2 September 2008 (UTC)

Paramedic[edit]

Hi Again, Medicellis. I think that I'm pretty much done with the Paramedic page. I've done whatever I could to sort out the problems, make the information useful, accessible, and high quality. It's also sufficiently broad in scope now to provide a fairly accurate representation, and I have cleaned up the spelling, punctuation, grammar, and general 'flow'. To be honest, I'm quite pleased with it, but I would welcome your feedback on the finished result. Emrgmgmtca (talk) 14:24, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

I'm very impressed with the quality of the paramedic article, very nicely written and expanded! I will take some time/effort over the next several times and see if I can help add (which I highly doubt) and any other issues. I would love your help with expanded/copy-edit of Emergency medical services, which I hope to make a good article (GA). Again thanks for your help! Medicellis (talk) 03:35, 28 August 2008 (UTC)

Paramedic[edit]

Hi Medicellis, and thanks for the invitation. As you can see I've joined the group. I've posted the stuff on the history of paramedicine on the main page now. If anyone suggests any additions etc., I will keep an eye on it. I also posted in the Talk section of the page on the Skills posting, making some suggestions to improve it...I'd be glad to know what you think. Also, just so you're aware, I've taken a shot at editing the U.S., Canada, and Australia pieces, just for grammar, clarity and readability. I will try to look in on a regular basis to see what work needs to be done, and what I think I can contribute. Emrgmgmtca (talk) 16:23, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

Dude, do I have to repeat the steps you need to do above? This is to ensure and prove that you say you are, and you are not some sort of copyright violator. Thanks. Zzyzx11 (Talk) 04:54, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
While you claim to have permission, confirmation from a person with OTRS access has not yet been placed on the talk page in question. Thus it is not currently possible to confirm your claim at this time. If you have sent the email then this issue will resolve itself with a little patience.
Once the copyright issues are resolved the article as you are creating it still had significant problems to be addressed to avoid further deletion. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia and not a game guide or how to manual. As the source you are pulling from is a game guide, the scope and tone of the text is that of a game guide. This means that the article you are creating will need to be almost completely rewritten with only minimal portions of the text you are currently adding likely to survive. I would suggest you read Wikipedia:Your first article for basic information on creating and article on Wikipedia and contact Wikipedia:WikiProject Video games for articles on games similar to Mars 2025 that you can use as examples during the rewrite process. --Allen3 talk 02:25, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of Mars2025[edit]

  • hello, I'm not associated with nor am advertising any program. I have expanded the article of CCEMTP to include more detailed discription of were the program was developed at. This isnt advertisment but demostrates noteability for inclusion into wiki. If you look at the orginal page I edited you will see that the article is wholly orginal and have only added the details of were the program is taken Medicellis (talk) 02:44, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

License tagging for Image:NonFreeImageRemoved.svg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:NonFreeImageRemoved.svg. You don't seem to have indicated the license status of the image. Wikipedia uses a set of image copyright tags to indicate this information; to add a tag to the image, select the appropriate tag from this list, click on this link, then click "Edit this page" and add the tag to the image's description. If there doesn't seem to be a suitable tag, the image is probably not appropriate for use on Wikipedia.

For help in choosing the correct tag, or for any other questions, leave a message on Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. Thank you for your cooperation. --ImageTaggingBot (talk) 04:10, 23 June 2008 (UTC)


Response[edit]

It took less than that to create what amounts to a directory entry, not an encyclopedia article. If you think they are notable, you're free to fix them. Carlossuarez46 (talk) 17:12, 12 July 2008 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Hey! I had a question and was hoping you might know the answer :p. By 2015 in order to be a nurse practitioner, one will need to be a Doctor of Nursing Practice. If I have a BSN, will I still need an MSN to apply for a DNP? Because what purpose will a MSN serve other than a stepping stone? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sheepeh (talkcontribs) 23:46, 14 July 2008 (UTC)

Hey Sheepeh, in most post baccalaureate programs will require a master to continue on before you will be aloud to enter a doctoral program. Right now the DNP is young (transitioning from Doctor of Nursing (ND)) and you will find limited direct BSN to DNP program probably less than mabe 5 in the US right now [1], [2]) although by 2015 you will find most CRNA programs direct BSN to DNP programs, and of course most colleges will have a BSN to DNP route. With this route though you will still have to complete entire MSN curriculum/courses, on the other hand this route will only have to defend one thesis (and not two as you would need to do completing separate MSN and DNP thesis's). As of right now other than a stepping stone completing your MSN will open your options up, in regards to schools obtaining a MSN is the best route. With all that stated, when the requirement of a DNP for NP and CRNA, will have a grandfather clause, meaning that if you are a MSN-NP you will be grandfathered in and will not have to obtain a DNP and still keep your credentials. At the present time a DNP is more of a research post-doctoral position, were you will get into teaching and nursing research. Medicellis (talk) 03:10, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! That was by far the best answer I have received so far. Getting the DNP established by 2015 is a loft goal indeed. Good luck in nursing school! Sheepeh (talk) 03:35, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

No problem, I have looked alot into this as I plan on becoming a CRNA after couple years of critical care RN experience. As I have a B.S. in biology, I would rather not have to obtain a BSN on top of my BS as well as a MSN and DNP. So I see were you are coming from. Medicellis (talk) 03:38, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Emergency medical services in Germany[edit]

Hi, I saw you categorized the above mentioned article as a stub. I don't want to appear vain, but doesn't the extent of the text an the information given there at least qualify for a "Start"? Thanks for your answer. Winnie-MD (talk) 09:25, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

Hi winnie, I have marked the article not for the quality of the written text, but for the lack of secondary cites and references, I'm sure there is a lot of them out there, but I have just started to go through all the EMS/emergency medicine, and haven't started to improve the articles as of yet. As I hit each page, I will be updating with appropriate clean-up tags, which I have done for this page. With 3-6 cites this page could easly hit "C" class on the assessment scale! Thanks for your questions, Cheers -- Medicellis (talk) 15:14, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
Well, that should be possible. However, since most sources would be in German, I don't think it would provide any significant advance. But I'll see what I can do.Winnie-MD (talk) 13:47, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
New week, new article... Hi, I just finished my work on the redo of the EMS article. Please feel free to have a look and, of course, check out the spelling and grammar. Greetings, Winnie-MD (talk) 13:14, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
Hi Winnie and Medicellis! I have just finished a major edit of Emergency medical service in Germany. I have primarily rewritten to increase clarity in your use of English, and to make sure that it is grammatically correct and that it 'flows' properly when read, Winnie. May I say that the information that you provided is absolutely outstanding, Winnie! I got a useful insight into German EMS that I have never obtained before, and it was absolutely fascinating. Thank you! I also reformatted the article to provide the same consistent format that I've been using for the other EMS by country pages. This provides a consistent way of looking for information, but this one has far more information than most! My personal opinion is that the article deserves even more than the C class that you were suggesting, Medicellis. Would both of you please look at the article, and let me know what you think? I'm particularly hopeful that you will approve, Winnie...your article is absolutely great, and all that I did was attempt to tidy it up and do it justice. Emrgmgmtca (talk) 13:50, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Paramedics in Germany[edit]

Dear Medicellis, I just reverted your last edit in the above stated article. Not because it is wrong or vandalism, but I think the information you supplied there is either misplaced (belonging to Emergency medical services in Germany or (in my personal opinion) more of an item list than an encyclopaedic entry. However, I will review the items you have listed and incorporate them into the Paramedic and EMS entries within the week. Please don't get me wrong, you didn't make any downright false statements, but with German EMS being my profession, it is...well, just not quite right and I just can see it written like that. But I will use the topics you mentioned for further refinement of these two articles.Winnie-MD (talk) 06:02, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Winnie, that is fine as I have little experience in Germany EMS I have no prob with you refining the information. As you can see from my edit summary, this information was merged from information that was from a delete/merge from another page, I have no doubt that there is mis-information, I welcome a native editor changing the information!! The Paramedics in Germany was the most appropriate place to put this information. I hope that you can help in expanding the document, and please consider joining the EMS wikiproject (WP:EMS) as we desperately need editors from other nations! thanks for your comments, cheers! Medicellis (talk) 11:35, 6 August 2008 (UTC)
I just rewrote the artice in my own Sandbox, what do you think now? Greetings, Winnie-MD (talk) 11:29, 7 August 2008 (UTC)
Wow, very nicely written Winnie, prob would qualify for C class article, both the Germany EMS re-write and the Germany paramedic page are very nicley written, once you post them I will go through for some minor copyedit stuff. Very well done. I hope you help with the Emergency medical services GA drive we have going on! Medicellis (talk) 13:41, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

EMD deletion[edit]

The normal process is this:

  • Talk to the person that deleted it. That would be Philosopher (talk · contribs). Just leave a nice note on the user's talk page.
  • If User:Philosopher isn't cooperative, then you can make a formal request at deletion review. Give a good, clear, concise explanation of your reasons (much like what you told me).
  • Alternatively, any Wikipedia administrator may undelete an article that went through {{prod}}. You can certainly find admins at the doctor's mess and may find one at WP:EMS. A friendly request for assistance is likely to be sufficient.

Hope this helps. WhatamIdoing (talk) 05:07, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

The Wikipedia Library now offering accounts from Cochrane Collaboration (sign up!)[edit]

The Wikipedia Library gets Wikipedia editors free access to reliable sources that are behind paywalls. Because you are signed on as a medical editor, I thought you'd want to know about our most recent donation from Cochrane Collaboration.

  • Cochrane Collaboration is an independent medical nonprofit organization that conducts systematic reviews of randomized controlled trials of health-care interventions, which it then publishes in the Cochrane Library.
  • Cochrane has generously agreed to give free, full-access accounts to 100 medical editors. Individual access would otherwise cost between $300 and $800 per account.
  • If you are still active as a medical editor, come and sign up :)
