Emergency Medical Science (EMS) Bridge

The Emergency Medical Science (EMS) Bridge program is designed for credentialed paramedics who want to obtain their EMS degree. Paramedics must have an active state or national paramedic credential to be eligible. The program is 100% online, which ensures that any paramedic can enroll, no matter their shift schedule. The Bridge program provides formal education in EMS management, EMS education and advanced pre-hospital practice.
