RN to EMT-Basic

RN to EMT-Basic

Students who are currently licensed as a Registered Nurse in the State of Michigan are eligible to attend a condensed EMT-Basic Course that will allow them to become licensed as an EMT. A RN undergoes extensive training in order to obtain their license, and the condensed course is designed to supplement this education, and focuses more on the emergency setting of the pre-hospital environment, as well as looking at medical care from the field perspective as an EMS Provider. Nurses usually do well with this aditional training, and it allows them to get a different perspective on emergency medical care as well as gain an understanding of the work of an EMS Provider, mending the gap between those in the field and those in the ER.


A Registered Nurse can use their EMT training to gain supplemental experience and work on an ambulance on their days off, gain experience to help them in the ER and other speciality areas in a hospital, but most use the course as a springboard to Paramedic program to become flight Nurses. There is a world of possibilities for nurses wanting to become EMT's, and we are excited to offer this opportunity for students wishing to extend their education.


Students must successfully complete and pass the cognitive and psychomotor testing as set forth by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT). This organization is recognized by many states in the US for testing purposes in order to receive certification and eventually licensure as an EMS Provider. Michigan is one of the states to recognize the NREMT, and students must successfully complete the testing and achieve certification through the NREMT before applying for state licensure.

In order to maintain their NREMT certification, Providers must renew by March of the year of its expiration by getting Continuing Education credits in the required areas or by attending a Refresher course, as outlined by the NREMT. Recertification can also be obtained by retaking the NREMT cognitive and psychomotor examinations. Information on initial and recertification can be found on the NREMT’s website.


Once certified, candidates must submit their application to the state(s) in which they would like to become licensed and apply for their state EMS Provider license. Each state has different requirements for EMS licensure, so it is important to contact each state's EMS Division for specific information for that state. In Michgan, an EMS Provider license is valid for three (3) years and continuing education credits must be obtained in specific areas before the license expiration date in order for the license to be renewed.
