Degree Requirements for Paramedics

The following is the opening statement of this position paper:

"It is the position of the National EMS Management Association (NEMSMA), the National Association of EMS Educators (NAEMSE), and the International Association of Flight and Critical Care Paramedics (IAFCCP), collectively known as “the associations” that the time has come for paramedicine to join the community of health professions that require a college degree. We believe that a two-year associate degree is the appropriate entry level of education for practitioners at the current paramedic level."
