Paramedic Classes

Can anyone tell me if I can use any of my Paramedic classes to get my Rn degree? And is there anyone out there that has bridged over to Rn from Paramedic?

RE: Paramedic Classes

I'm currently a paramedic, and just about to start this program. You need to gather all of your college general ed courses, ie, english, math, psych, etc and see where you stand. Depending on where you took your paramedic, you may have had anat and phys or what ever, and you can apply that. The paramedic cert. makes you elegible to qualify for this program, but may not count as a whole lot of college credit. Remember, this is a college degree, therefore its like most others, you need general ed courses, combined with nursing core courses, to add up to around 60 credits,, make sense?? buck mabile buckyjm35@hotmail.com

RE: Paramedic Classes

Yes, it's possible. I'm a paramedic working full time and taking this program at the same time. I am not progressing as rapidly as I would like, but its hard being a single mom, home responsibilities, working full time and going to school. With me, I take 1 class at a time. I'm fortunate in that I went to school and have one bachelor's degree in which I was required to take a lot of courses in biology/chemistry, etc. I only need to take the micro and whatever nursing courses in order to get my degree.

RE: Paramedic Classes

Working 24 hour shifts is great for study time. When you arn't takin calls you can study. Depending on where you work and what station you are at.
