ONE TERM FORMAT – Our RN to EMT Bridge program is for the Registered Nurse who is looking to obtain certification as an Emergency Medical Technician. The full program will be presented in a twelve (12) week format which will allow for online course completion as well as hands on practical lab sessions. This presentation provides a more intense learning experience but allows for the student to complete all certificate requirements. Students only take and complete the portions of the EMT program that are not part of their RN certification. Our unique ability to give previous credit for education and certification allows students to complete the program in less time than when taking a full course of instruction.
Students apply for admission at the beginning of a term and will have 12 weeks (or till the end of the term) to complete the full program.
The RN to Emergency Medical Technician course prepares the EMT student to provide prehospital assessment and care for patients of all ages with a variety of medical conditions and traumatic injuries as well as advanced airway techniques, and basic medication administration.
