Any body know what States accept the NREMT-Paramedic cert instead of a State exam to practise?

I bet the NR website will provide you with a list and links to state EMS offices to follow up.

the last I knew there are 39 states that require national registry to practice. Many of them also require a state license or certification in addition.

Reciprocity is not an automatic thing.

Even with NR some require you to take a state test as well. Other states just take your cash and a copy of your NR. NR is not a license to practice just shows you passed a test.

Texas does not require a seperate test but you cannot practice with just the NR you must pay the state and wait for them to issue a certification. New Mexico may or may not require you to take a test, depends on the school you took for Paramedic as to whether the NR will be enough to just pay the cash for the New Mexico Certification. you will also find that many NR states require you to pass a state specific protocol exam.

Wisconsin does not require a state test as well as registry. If you have your registry then you can have a liscense.
