"If you're still looking at this, consider the program at Hutchinson, KS.  They are excellent, and you have as many clinicals as any other nursing program.  The course work is online, but the clinicals are arranged in hospitals -…"

"good point. You may have taken A&P in for paramedic, but it's not at all the equivalent of a true A&P class. Btw, I'm the only Paramedic degree student in this class, possibly the school. All the other students are either nursing…"

"Just one caution - make sure that your paramedic prerequisites are the same courses as the pre-nurses take.  Some schools have a dumbed-down anatomy and physiology for medics that is not generally accepted for transfer credit.  Don't…"
