The Department offers the associate's degree
and certificate in Emergency Medical Sciences. Successful program completion
satisfies the eligibility requirements to apply for the paramedic
credentialing examinations offered by the National Registry of Emergency
Medical Technicians (NREMT).
Graduates who complete the certificate program are eligible
to complete the associate's degree at a later time as long as all
requirements of the degree plan are met.
Students can also enroll in individual courses offered by the
department, including the Introduction to Emergency Medical Technology
(EMS 1602), Foundations of the Paramedic (EMS 2210), Pathophysiology
(EMS 2220), Emergency Medical Responder (EMS 1291), and Anatomy and
Physiology (EMS 1311). Students who successfully complete EMS1602
may be eligible to challenge the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)
credentialing examinations offered by the NREMT.
Note: Successful completion of the above programs does not itself insure
licensure or registration. Each student is responsible for
becoming familiar with the applicable licensure and
