Challenge Paramedic exam after RN?

  1. If you have an RN license, I have heard that there are places where, perhaps with a few classes, you can challenge the paramedic exam. Does anyone know about this?

    Thanks,

    Check out Creighton University. They have an accelerated program for RNs wishing to earn NREMT-P certification.

    That same topic has been discussed on here before, so if you do a search you might find someone here who has actual experience with the program.

    Good luck!

    Typically you can take an abreviated Paramedic course. In NY it's 6 months, and you must already be an EMT for the last year, and have ER/ICU experience.
