Emergency Medical Science

Representing EMT Program

The Emergency Medical Science curriculum program prepares graduates to enter the Field of emergency medical services. Upon successful completion, students are eligible for the North Carolina state paramedic exam.

Paramedic students will acquire the necessary information and skills needed to manage critically ill or injured patients in the pre-hospital setting. Students will learn skills such as: patient assessment, endotracheal intubation, surgical airway placement, EKG defibrillation ,intravenous(IV) access and medication administration.

The Carteret Community College Paramedic program has been issued a Letter of Review by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP Executive Office). This letter is NOT a CAAHEP accreditation status, it is a status signifying that a program seeking initial accreditation has demonstrated sufficient compliance with the accreditation Standards through the Letter of Review Self Study Report (LSSR) and other documentation. Letter of Review is recognized by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) for eligibility to take the NREMT’s Paramedic credentialing examination(s). However, it is NOT a guarantee of eventual accreditation.
