The 2013 class of Nash Community College’s Emergency Medical Technician Basic and Intermediate Program recently graduated.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for emergency medical technicians is expected to increase between now and 2018 as a result of higher call volume due to an aging population, an increase in time required for each patient and an increase in specializing hospitals resulting in more patient transport. The program instills discipline, character, professionalism, teamwork, integrity, credibility, physical ability, knowledge and skills to perform the job of a professional emergency medical technician.
