Students Graduate from New Jersey, MONOC Paramedic Program

Wall, NJ – Last week, the formal graduation ceremony was held for the Ocean County College/MONOC Paramedic Program.  From this most recent class, a total of 28 students graduated from both the traditional and hybrid classes and will now move onto complete their final hands-on clinical rotations.  Once students complete this required training, they will sit for their State and National Paramedic exam.  When certified, Paramedics will go to work at one of the 21 Mobile Intensive Care Unit (MICU) Paramedic programs located throughout New Jersey.

Agnes Galiano, Paramedic Program Manager, said “Congratulations to the graduates! They are an outstanding group and more than prepared for their clinical and field internships!”

The Ocean County College/MONOC Paramedic Program is one of only four Paramedic training programs in New Jersey and out of those four, one of only two programs to be accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP).
