TJC to offer Paramedic to RN Transition Program

Beginning with the spring 2012 semester, the Tyler Junior College School of Nursing and Health Sciences will offer a Paramedic to Registered Nurse Transition Program.

The program will be designed around the typical time constraints of the working paramedic; and all theory content will be delivered online while skills lab and clinical rotations will be held in the Tyler area.

This initiative reflects the call from the Institute of Medicine for the creation of pathways to support diversity with the nursing profession and will allow paramedics about 9 months to complete the requirements for taking the NCLEX-RN examination.

Paramedics interested in applying to this program should visit the TJC Nursing and Health Sciences academic advisors on the second floor of Rogers Student Center on the TJC main campus. Program guidelines and application periods are available at www.tjc.edu/nursing.

For more information, contact the TJC Associate Degree Nursing Office at 903-510-2869.
