Statement of Philosophies
A medical emergency is immediate, real, and a significant endangerment of the mental, emotional, and physical well-being of a person. Rapid and clear thought should prevail. The responding EMTs and Paramedics should take appropriate and aggressive action.
Health is a delicate and precarious state of existence, which is to be protected and maintained.
EMT’s and Paramedic’s are knowledgeable people who have achieved a discipline of science and understanding concerning holistic pre-hospital patient care.
EMT’s and Paramedic’s are health care professionals, which provide physiological as well as emotional supportive care to ill and injured persons.
EMT’s and Paramedics have the responsibility to possess cognitive,psychomotor, and affective skills.
The faculty is committed to the preparation of EMT and Paramedic students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes essential to care for ill and injured persons, and to educational excellence.
The purposes of the NTCC EMS Program are to prepare a graduate to:
Function as a practitioner in the pre-hospital care and emergency medical environment at the desired certification level.
Have a general knowledge of mathematics, natural sciences, behavioral science, and humanities.
Serve as a self motivated and self directed practitioner in EMS, who strives for personal and professional educational development.
