  • Virginia Medic Reciprocity?

    I called the EMS office up there and left a message but they have yet to get back to me.
    I'm a Paramedic in FL with an Associates in EMS and was wondering if VA will accept my Medic License?
    Here:

    It says they accept all BLS licenses, but on the whole website it doesnt really mention ALS, other than call.

    Can anyone clarify?

    National Registry

    You're a Nationally Registered Medic correct?

    If so, then you should be able to use that and then challenge the local protocols through a written. They may even make you do a practical test.

    If not, then it's gonna be a bit more of a challenge.

      Not Nationally Registered, yet. I will take the NREMT-P if they wont accept my Florida. I know they accept the NREMT-P no problem with no side-tests, thats why i'm wondering about my florida cert.

        Got It....

        Ahhhhhhh, I see..... Our local accreditation says that you have to 1st pass the NRT before taking the local test.

        Virginia is a beautiful state..... Enjoy it.

            Virginia uses the NREMT-P as the test for EMT-P certification.

                Get that NR-P ASAP. I was a medic in NYC for a year before I started exploring other states for jobs. I took the Fairfax entrance exam in 11/06. They told me that I would only be considered a basic until I get the NR-P. I was making good money as a medic at the time, so I took my time getting the NR-P, not actually getting it until 8/07. They were good about scheduling the medical, poly, and psych on consecutive days since I lived out of state. I haven't seen a non medic hired since my class, the 126th. I had to take two polys, so maybe that's why they didn't call me with an offer for the 125th until the day after Christmas. It was too short notice, so I did the 126th. One of my former co-workers in NY got into the 117th after only a nine week process, since he already had his NR-P.

                When you get the job offer, they'll file te PPW to get you Virginia reprocity. We do on duty EMS ConEd three times a year for 8 hours at our training center. We also do bubble cards for Jems articles, so Virginia and NR-P recerts are a piece of cake. No off duty adventures to conferences or hospitals are necessary.

                    Yeah im starting to hit the books and go back over what I learned in Medic school. Im going to try and take it as soon as I can, but I have to check with the NR people to see when is the earliest I can take it.
