Paramedic to Nursing?

  1. I've just finished my EMT-B class and I plan to go into a Paramedic program while I'm on the waiting list for a nursing program. My question is would it be more beneficial to get and Associate's degree in Paramedicine rather than just getting certified as a Paramedic? Thanks!

    At my school (Ivy Tech), the RN program has a transition option for paramedics. That way you don't have to go through the whole program from beginning to end. Also, the paramedic program is a diploma program, rather than certificate only. An AAS I think.
