Paramedic to B.S. in Paramedicine Pathway

Bachelor of Science in paramedicine Online Degree Completion Pathway

Creighton University's Bachelor of Science in Paramedicine (BS-PMC) online degree completion program is for nationally registered paramedics seeking to advance their knowledge and skills. The Paramedicine Department, recognizing the paramedic's prior education and clinical experience, offers a curriculum designed to complement previous course work. The curriculum emphasizes a strong basic science foundation, advanced clinical content, and leadership/management skills to further one's career in the field of emergency medical services.

A Creighton University Bachelor’s degree requires the completion of 128 semester credit hours. Forty-eight of these credit hours must be earned at Creighton University, including the final 32 hours. A minimum of 15 credit hours must be earned in the major area of study through the College of Nursing.

Students who have pursued their paramedic education courses at another institution for college credit will receive block credit for a maximum of 49 credit hours for the core paramedic coursework. This block credit will be awarded upon completion of all required coursework towards the degree. Standard Creighton University policies on acceptance and transfer of academic credits, apart from the block credits, from other accredited institutions will be applied. For those who completed the paramedic program for a certificate of completion without college credit awarded, a course conversion fee will be assessed.
