Alabama Begins “Direct to Paramedic” Program

MUSCLE SHOALS, Ala. (WHNT) — A pilot education program is being launched across the state this fall to increase the number of first responders.



For years we’ve heard about the shortage of nurses, but now there’s a shortage of qualified paramedics who respond to emergency scenes.

To help fill the increased need for paramedics, the Alabama Department of Post-Secondary Education partnered with select community colleges across the state to offer the “Direct to Paramedic” program.
