The degree program consists of credits in general education and basic sciences at Hudson County Community College, and credits in the professional component of Paramedic Science courses taken through RWJ/Barnabas Health.
The professional curriculum consists of lecture and laboratory courses, at either the Jersey City campus or at East Brunswick campus of RWJ/Barnabas Health. Practical and hands-on experiences are at the program’s affiliated clinical laboratory sites. The clinical experiences allow the graduate a smooth transition into the fast-paced, patient-centered environment of a modern emergency medical system.
Through the performance of patient assessments and the provision of medical care, the paramedic’s goal is to prevent and reduce mortality and morbidity due to illness and injury. Paramedics primarily provide care to emergency patients in an out-of-hospital setting.
The Paramedic Program at Hudson County Community College is an excellent and productive learning environment. The instructors have helped me prepare to be an excellent paramedic and have helped me grow as an individual. The didactic, clinical, and simulation experience was great, and provided a life-like environment to prepare me for live patient care.
The Paramedic program is accredited by:
Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) upon the recommendation of the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP)
