Why Study Paramedic Medicine at CSN?

Our program features the only associate degree in paramedic medicine in southern Nevada that is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP). With advanced lab space, simulators and mannequins, students learn in a state-of-the-art, case-based environment that prepares them for actual patient care by emulating real-world settings. Most of our faculty still work in pre-hospital capacities and actively maintain certification and licensure, including a Master EMS Instructor.
