Clinical Credit for Experiential Learning/Advanced Placement: NEEMSI may provide credit within the clinical portion of programs. Students must complete all required clinical hours, however, adjustments to the hourly breakdown may be adjusted based upon previous experience. For example, an emergency department RN that completes a paramedic program may have emergency department hours adjusted into other areas of the hospital or into field internship hours. Students will however complete all in-hospital skills and assessment requirements. Students may request this through the clinical coordinator and must be approved by the program manager and medical director.
