Just heard something interesting to any EMT's out there who are thinking of enrolling in Excelsior College's nursing program, but haven't yet.
They are changing their entrance requirements as of 01/01/03. Any EMT's (basic or intermediate) will also have to have 1000 documented hours of direct patient care under supervision of a licensed health care professional as well.
I'm not sure what the criteria are for 'direct' and 'supervision' are, etc. But you might want to call the admissions office for clarification.
I'm enrolled, but I know several people who are "thinking about it". It might make your life easier to get in before you need to fulfill those extra requirements. Good Luck!
