Emergency Medical Services is an ever-expanding field in the allied health careers. With additional certifications in Critical Care Paramedic, Flight Paramedic and recently Community Paramedic, becoming a Nationally Registered Paramedic is your first step in an exciting career field.
The NDSCS/SHEMSE program is a two-year program for those new to the industry. The first year students are considered pre-paramedic while they complete program requirements needed to start year two. Once a student has completed the requirements to enter into the second year, they will be asked to complete a supplemental application form found on the NDSCS website. The second year of the program has limited enrollment. Students will be accepted into the second year of the program based on completion of year two prerequisites.
