"These sites provide valuable experiences to our students that could not be duplicated in the classroom," said Deanna Wiseman, CCBC EMT program clinical coordinator, in a release.
"With the ability to spend time at the clinical sites, CCBC students can interact directly with physicians, nurses, pharmacists, respiratory therapists and other health care providers. Their clinical experience includes working with supervision in such units as the emergency department, labor and delivery, burn center, shock trauma, intensive care unit, poison center, operating rooms and other specialized health care evaluation and treatment centers," Wiseman said, in the release.
The Emergency Medical Technician program at CCBC is a two-year program for students to become EMTs and paramedics.
