MISSION STATEMENT

Rockland Community College Emergency Medical Services Program is committed to educating the most highly trained and professional EMS providers possible. We are dedicated to providing an excellent education in pre-hospital care and to graduate students dedicated to providing professional, compassionate care.

Our program combines a rigorous academic program with a wide diversity of clinical experiences. Recent Paramedic Graduates have maintained greater than 95 percent pass rate on the National Registry and New York State Paramedic Exams. Classes are held at the Rockland Community College main campus and are taught by experienced, educated, faculty members who have extensive EMS experience. We take pride in our studies and offer state of the art equipment for our students.

The Job outlook for Emergency Medical Services professionals is great. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, job opportunities for EMS professionals will grow faster than average for all occupations through the year 2010. Our graduates benefit from a 100 percent rate of employment in the Emergency Medical Service field. Continued population growth and urbanization as well as aging baby boomers will increase the demand for EMTs and paramedics. As it gets harder to fill volunteer positions, paid EMT and Paramedic positions will increase in both cities and rural communities. Opportunities will be best for those who have certifications and degrees.
