Proposed RN to Paramedic Policy


The RN to Paramedic Policy and Procedures Version 1 01/12/2017 is the culmination of comprehensive performance improvement review during 2016.  Recommendations of this policy and procedure change were reviewed by the Medical Policy Care Committee (MPCC), Regional Medical Review Committee (RMRC) and the State Medical Review Committee (SMRC).

This policy change will not affect students presently enrolled in current classes. The existing RN to Paramedic Policy and Procedures - Policy Number: 6.4.8-020113 will remain in force. Training institutions may continue to use this existing policy and curriculum through December 31 2017.

In compliance with Legislative Rule 64 CSR48 9.1.b.2 a thirty day public comment period will be in effect from March 14, 2017 through April 13, 2017.  All comments must be submitted by 11:59 PM April 13, 2017 to:




The RN to Paramedic Policy and Procedures Version 1 01/12/2017 will become effective January 1, 2018. All new classes must follow the new curriculum from that date forward.  This will allow nine (9) months for the training institutions to adjust their current curriculum to reflect this policy change.
