People's lives often depend on the quick reactions and competent care of emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics. EMTs and paramedics provide this vital service as they care for and transport the sick or injured to a medical facility. The Paramedic program will provide you with the required knowledge and skills to care for patients who are injured due to trauma or suffer from medical problems. Your instructors not only teach, but work as paid professionals in the paramedic field.
After successful completion of the program, you will be eligible to take the National Registry for Emergency Medical Technicians, and acquire a Nebraska license to practice as an advanced provider. This program is approved through the State of Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services Regulation and Licensure. EMT-Basic (EMTL 1830 and current EMT certification) is a prerequisite for acceptance into the Northeast Paramedic program.
Many health care providers require a criminal background check prior to employment. Students will be required to submit to a criminal background check prior to the Paramedic clinical courses. Individuals with a criminal record may not be eligible to complete clinical education in some settings based on the results of their criminal background check.
The Northeast Community College Paramedic Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) upon the recommendation of the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP).”
