The Paramedic to RN program teaches you skills of direct patient care that you can apply in any healthcare setting. It offers theoretical and applied instruction in classrooms, simulated laboratories, and clinical settings. The program integrates education in adult, gerontological, obstetric, pediatric, and psychiatric-mental health nursing. Your clinical learning will take place in diverse types of institutions.
The Nursing program has a selective and limited admission policy. The application is available online at Pueblo Community College Nursing from September 1 to November 1. All Health & Public Safety programs have essential functions to help you be successful in the program and career. Applicants must have two (2) years of Paramedic work experience. Eligible paramedics must have an unencumbered license. Accepted applicants will receive 21 PLA credits.
Note: You must undergo a background check and drug screen before we can officially admit you into the program. A felony, loss of license, administrative disciplinary proceeding for negligence, malpractice, recklessness, or willful or intentional misconduct may prohibit entrance into the program and/or eligibility to sit for licensure exams.
The Paramedic-ADN program prepares you to provide safe, therapeutic, and competent nursing care in hospitals and other healthcare settings. You may also work as an entry-level patient-care manager.
