TB Test & Background Checks

All students entering into the EMT/Paramedic program must show proof of a clear TB skin test before they are allowed to go into clinical sites to observe and interact with patients.  If a student does not have documentation of a clear TB skin test, an opportunity will be provided at the beginning of each semester for each student to have the test administered and read.  A fee will be charged by the nurse providing this service.

All students entering into the EMT/Paramedic program must pass a criminal background check to be licensed as EMTs or paramedics.  Paperwork for this check will be completed in class and delivered to the Arkansas Department of Health for processing.
