Pima Medical Institute Paramedic Graduates Have 100 Percent Licensure Rate
Posted: November 4, 2015 by Elizabeth Baker
Our paramedic program at the Mesa, Ariz. Campus is seeing great student achievement. Our first class had 100 percent graduation and licensure rates, making it a very successful first paramedic cohort. All the graduates work for the Mesa Fire and Medical Department.
More students are following in their footsteps and are currently enrolled. The 14-month associate degree program focuses on classes in advanced life support training and education, including the administration of a broad range of medications while in the field.
Our students participate in 1,400 hours of classroom and field training, which exceeds the 1,000-hour course requirement for the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT).
Those interested in enrolling must hold an active emergency medical technician certificate and interview with admissions officials. Graduates are eligible to apply to take the NREMT at the paramedic level and apply for state certification.
Pima Medical Institute's first paramedic graduating cohort from the Mesa, Ariz., campus. All the graduates from the first cohort work for the Mesa Fire and Medical Department.
