The EMT – Paramedic program is designed for Missouri Paramedics to further their education and receive their AAS degree. NCMC does not offer the core paramedic courses. The core program must be taken off campus and you must supply NCMC with a copy of your Missouri Paramedic license. Students then decide if they want to pursue the Health Track or Management Track courses. Once the student has successfully completed the core program, the general education courses and provided a copy of their Missouri Paramedic license, NCMC will confer the degree.
What is a Paramedic?
Paramedics help care for the sick or injured in emergency medical settings. People’s lives often depend on the quick reaction and competent care provided by these workers as they are usually the first ones on a scene. Paramedics may perform the following duties: respond to 911 calls, assess a patient’s condition and determine a course of treatment, provide first-aid treatment or life support care, transport patients safely in an ambulance, report observations and treatment to physicians, nurses, or other healthcare facility staff, document care given to patient, and take inventory of supplies and
re-stock. Paramedics can also give medications orally and intravenously, interpret EKGs, and use other monitors and complex equipment.
