Want RN to Paramedic?

Come to Australia. We have plenty in Melbourne Victoria.

It is the norm to move from RN to Paramedic here rather than the other way around.

...and a tip for those wanting an online course for paramedic to RN? Nursing is more than that.....

aside from the kaplan or excelsior programs i know of three in Kansas. There is one that is 12 months usually starting in January at Hutchinson community college, the other two are pu ton by Pratt Comm. Col. and Garden City Comm. Col. they are both 9 months or a reg school yr long however they all require clinical hours at various locations ( depending on program) with in the state. So unless you are in Kansas or dont mind the travel im not sure these will be of any use to you. Good Luck !!

I'm currently looking for an online Paramedic to RN bridge program. If anyone would have any information on some acredited programs, i would truely appreciate it. Thanks!

I do not believe that there are any that go from RN to Paramedic. There used to be one in Omaha NE, but i think it is no longer running.

Does anybody out there know if there are any California Colleges that teach the Paramedic to RN or P. A. program that teach by teleconference? Not private colleges either. The closest programs to Bakersfield for Medic to RN is College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita (80 miles) and Fresno (100+ miles). San Joaquin Valley College has the closest PA Program in Visalia (75 miles), but they charge out the nose for the class and it is a full 2 years. It would be nice if one of the other colleges did a 2 way video conference. I wish Stanford/Foothill College, would do it because their program is only 15 months (straight through.

Bakersfield College was talking about a Medic to RN program. They suddenly dropped it for an "undisclosed reason"...

If you all know of any colleges anywhere in the USA that does this type of telecofnerence for their RN or P. A. programs, let me know.

Thanks, I wouldn't doubt Loma Linda as one of them. I'll check into everything, thanks again for the info.

It could be Loma Linda being one of the places but I just don't remember for sure. I am not sure about working at the DOC either but if it is a way in to a program then I am game. If you talk to the DOC recruiters they might be able to fill you in. Depending on your schedule, you might consider working at an ER as a tech. That might help.

Thanks, I'll go ahead and do that. I saw College of the Canyon's and Victor Valley College online. I contacted the Bureau of LVN and they said something about paramedic only gives you 8 months experience towards LVN, I'm not looking to work for DOC, but would like to challenge the test if I could to speed up the RN process if there isn't something for paramedic to RN near me (Orange County). Thanks again,

Contact the state nursing board in California. They can probably give you the names of the approved programs.

Check with the Department of Corrections. They are always recruiting for Med Techs. Somewhere there is a provision that allows paramedics to challenge the LVN exam and the DOC has that info.

It looks like the Paramedic to RN programs require or provide additional training in OB/GYN, Pediatrics, and Pharmacology. They are the same classes as the RN classes. The Pharmacology class is online for some of the junior colleges.

Be careful of the online paramedic to RN programs. California doesn't like them and you may have a huge hassle trying to get it accepted.
