Lorain County Community College in partnership with the Cleveland Clinic Foundation has developed a new program track that will allow Paramedics to earn their Registered Nursing degree. This program also features the only fully online lecture instruction in any of the 22 nursing programs in the region.

“This transformation from a traditional classroom-based class to an online class will enable students to complete the requirements for theory instruction at any time, in any place where they can be connected to the web,” said Hope Moon, program coordinator of LCCC’s Nursing Program.

The Paramedic to RN program will begin in the fall semester at LCCC and will be able to accommodate 24 students. The online delivery will be complemented by the use of hand-held mobile devices (PDA’s, iPods, and other Internet-ready communications technology) so that instruction, tutoring, demonstrations and other information can be reviewed as often as the student requires in order to increase the student’s confidence in and mastery of the material, Moon said.

“The Paramedic to RN track will provide another component in the educational pathway for health care practitioners, and will substantially improve the career pathways for the region’s emerging and incumbent Paramedic workforce,” Moon said.

The Paramedic to RN track will support the Nursing Education Articulation model that was developed by faculty and staff at Lorain County Community College, and has been adopted by the State of Ohio and other states. Paramedics who complete the program will increase the number of RNs in Lorain County and the Northeast Ohio region.

The new track will deliver nursing education with a second key innovation: the development of one new course, and the modification of others, that will take full advantage of the pre-existing skill, knowledge and competencies of paramedics enrolling in the RN program. “This new Transition Course will capture the Paramedic training and experience,” Moon noted.

Upon completion of the Transition Course students will progress into the second semester of the generic RN program as a group to allow for building from the paramedic’s knowledge base into the competencies required to become a Registered Nurse.

The Cleveland Clinic Foundation Western Region is providing space for this educational track at its West Park building. Clinical experiences will be held at the three Cleveland Clinic Western Region facilities: Lutheran Medical Center, Lakewood Hospital, and Fairview Hospital.

The Cleveland Clinic Western Region will also recruit qualified clinical and laboratory instructional faculty to support the track from the current nursing staff.
