  1. Does anyone have any actual Research that supports "Boot Camps." Everyone I speak with about this has various opinions, mostly that in six months they can't remember a thing and if they had to take the EMT test again they couldn't. Actual research about learning and these accelerated schools. It seems the supporters of these camps are the camps themselves and I can't help but think of the conflict of interest. Every College professor I speak with just starts to laugh about the efficacy of this type of teaching and points to how even in the university setting they are trying to get away from lectures as much as they can, but the biggest block is the tradition. I need some nuts and bolts on this subject??? Anyone? I mean the EMS at the crossroads books from the Fed are a start, but not the complete kind of information that I need. Link: http://www.nap.edu/catalog/11629/emergency-medical-services-at-the-crossroads It seems that as EMT/Medics this type of course is just shooting ourselves in the foot. I think it contributes to the low pay scale, constant exchange of new faces and overall low quality of care. I took my classes at a Hospital based course and compared to these private courses there is a world of difference. Additionally every MD I speak with asks the same question about how has the medical community lost control of these courses??? I mean as an example my kindergarten teacher went to school for 5 years to learn to teach. But to teach an EMT course in my state you only need to take a 6 hour course, that mostly covers how to fill out the paperwork, technically you don't even need a GED to teach. A hairdresser needs 300 hours of instruction to get their license, but here I see stuff like: " Learn a new Career as an EMT in 2 weeks" ??? Truthfully this is an embarrassment to me when I see this kind of advertisement! Am I alone here? Thanks.
  2. Hello, I am an EMS educator and former college program coordinator. I'm also a former EMS Director. I am now working very hard to improve EMS in the Caribbean and particularly the Turks and Caicos Islands. One of the challenges we've discovered in our efforts is the lack of qualified and accredited Regional EMS education available. For example, if you hire two graduates from one particular school we commonly deal with, there is absolutely no minimum standard or reasonable measure of skill set or competence. One graduate will have mediocre understanding of basic cardiopulmonary anatomy and physiology and the other will have none. One graduate will have some familiarity with a stretcher and the other will have operated one at all. So, we have raised funds and we are looking at a scholarship strategy to get eligible candidates to the U.S. for basic education. I'm hoping to initiate a conversation here about that idea...what state, and what schools may be best and if anyone has any experience with anything similar. You can reply here or I'm at tciems@hotmail.com Thanks, Pat Riel
  3. I do appologize, I am SURE something similar has been asked, but I cannot find it. Maybe my search-fu is horrible? I'm an American NRP and practice in Kentucky. I hold a bachelors degree from EKU in Emergency Medical Care (Paramedic/Premed). I am not currently looking to move to Australia (or anywhere for that matter) but I am curious, what would I have to do to get licensed in your country? I know my background isn't rare but it isn't the norm either, and I know Aussies generally have their act together with paramedicine so I'd be interested in what hoops there are. Thank you!
  4. Hi, My name is Patrick and I'm a 20 year old EMT-Intermediate student here in Germany. After finishing my German Baccalaeurate (High School Diploma) this spring I'd like to attend Med. School. Due to the high entrance criteria over here I'll need to wait a couple of years in order to get in. Now I'm thinking about starting Paramedic training in the US this fall/next spring. I'm thinking of a 2+2 program which would entitle myself to work as a Paramedic after the first 2 years... 2nd half could be pre-med school curriculum. Before Med School I'd love to gain some hands on patient experience, routine and knowledge of a wide scope of practice! I was recommended to look for a county / state of education where EMS is not the stepchild of the Fire departments Due to the out-of-state tuition fee I'd like to attend community college for as long as possible! I was told to look at Wake Tech, NC: http://www.waketech.edu/programs-courses/credit/emergency-medical-science/ems-degree-program Could you: - Recommend me a community college in the US where EMS is taught similary? - Your favourite county where EMS is disconnected from Fire agencies? - Share your experience with international (German?) EMS students and their performance in EMS Degree Programs? This summer is fully booked from July 28th to November 3rd as I'm going to backpack around SE-Asia. Hence programs could start in the end of 2014. My current plan is to start the German "Rettungsassistent" (very narrow scope of practice comp. to a US-Paramedic) this November. Maybe your advice makes me change my plans! Give it a try

  6. Hi! My name is Robin, I'm a paramedic and have worked in EMS for about eight years now and am now looking for a bridge program to RN. I live in Washington but am willing to move anywhere in the US for a good program. I've done a lot of research online but am hoping to get some actual suggestions from fellow EMSers . I'd really appreciate any suggestions! Thanks guys! Stay safe out there! - Robin

    Just wanted to get ideas from all over on what you guys do in class besides recite the textbook and do labs? Any EMS advances discussion? New treatment? New innovations in the EMS community? Case studies? I have a very cut and dry program. We go to class, read our book, and leave. Any insight would be helpful.
  8. Hello everyone, My name is Susanna and I'm an Industrial EMR. I stumbled across this forum when looking for educational tips on NAIT. My question is, does anyone have any tips for the multiple choice and scenario? I don't know how or what to study, has anyone recently tried out for NAIT or even better, an instructor? Anyway, I think this website is really helpful and an awesome tool, so I'm glad to have found it. I want to be a paramedic, I have a desire to help people and I'll be honest, I'm attracted to the brotherhood and the fact that we have to keep physically fit, what a great lifestyle! My working situation isn't currently 'ideal' however, its made me even more focused and determined on this career path. Its great to say hello and I hope to follow in some of your footsteps soon, God Bless. -Susanna
  9. Can anyone tell me about "The college network" ?. Is it accredited in Florida for Florida nursing, is it credible or wasteful? I'm a full time medic on the road and work part time as a medic in the local hospital er, and looking into transitioning. thanks in advance for your answers
  10. Every May, during EMS week, the division in which I work participates in fundraising and BBQ's in order to raise money for different things (eg; public AED's, Capsule of Life, etc). This year, there's been question about what "cause" we should support, and I've decided to put forth the idea of raising awareness for EMS, 9-1-1, and prehospital/community health. We're an ALS service in a very rural community full of farmers and country folk, and many of the residents in this jurisdiction are of the belief that an ambulance is just a big expensive taxi to the hospital. Part of the problem is that the ambulance service that formerly operated in this region was BLS, and quite frankly did VERY little to show any presence in the community, or educate the public. What I'm looking for are ideas, suggestions, and advice for accomplishing a vague and generalized goal. I'd like to raise awareness about when to call 9-1-1, what we do in the back of the ambulance, what to do when you see lights & sirens, and begin spreading the concept of paramedics being "Prehospital providers" as opposed to strictly being "Emergency personnel/ambulance drivers". An example of an idea that I've had is to put on a free first-aid/CPR course for the community, during which we will include some of the teaching points mentioned above. If you have any ideas, or related past-experience in public awareness that you can share, I would love to hear it! What do you think?
  11. Hello.. I'm currently an Illinois state licensed paramedic. I took my classes through St. Anthony Medical Center OSF in Rockford, IL. I am looking for an associates in applied sciences and was told a few colleges will accept the course that I took through St. Anthony Medical Center OSF, awarding credits towards an associates degree. I was told that after the college reviews the course and determines what about of credits would be awarded, that I would be required to "buy in" the credits towards the associates degree. Please advise me further if there is any colleges that can do this in order for me to obtain an associates. Thank you,

  13. I'm a paramedic student at the moment and have my eyes set on working in more of a critical care setting, be it flight or ground. I am looking at this for my future in EMS and something to do later on when I become more "seasoned" but which course is better, the CCEMT-P at USMB or the CCP-C? Also if I have one of those courses if I plan to go into Nursing, how helpful are those courses for CCRN? I have heard mixed feelings saying it is a joke and some saying it was very helpful in getting the CCRN.
