RN to Paramedic in the UK

World International


What is the most logical route for an RN who wants to switch careers and become a paramedic in the UK?

Are there any options in England for a nurse who wants to train as a paramedic, while working fulltime as a nurse?

Specializes in Advanced Practice, surgery.

Paramedic training is now a full time degree course, I don't think there is any way to do it part time.

Google paramedic degree and contact the universities would be my advise

Specializes in Spinal Cord injuries, Emergency+EMS.

most of the Nurse to Paramedics i know in the UK made the switch to working for an ambulance service or doing a pre-reg paramedic degree as their 'main' role and then did bank / agency as an RN while in training, in theory you could use your practice as a paramedic to maintain Nursing registration as well.
