Paramedic

  • Welcome

    Paramedics provide medical care by preventing or reducing mortality and morbidity due to illness and injury.  Paramedics primarily provide emergent and non-emergent care to patients in and out-of-hospital settings.

    As a patient advocate, Paramedics seek to be proactive in affecting long-term health care by working in conjunction with other provider agencies, networks, and organizations. The emerging roles and responsibilities of the Paramedic include, community healthcare, public education, health promotion, and participation in injury and illness prevention programs. These in addition to more traditional roles in pre-hospital Medicine with ambulance services, fire departments, flight programs as well as within hospital critical access care areas.

    Overview

    Full time traditional option
    The full time program is located on the Lincoln campus. Paramedic students will complete the core coursework after completion of prerequisite coursework in one year. The full time option admits students in the Fall term. Paramedic students will complete coursework in classrooms and laboratories as well as gain hands-on experience through clinical and field experiences in hospitals, fire departments, and ambulance services.
