I recently took a semester long course at a college here in florida for emt-b. I passed and got the OK to go onto the NREMT. I signed up on the Pearson Vue Website (i guess thats how they are doing the computer based testing now) and i am taking it friday. Now my question is, they NEVER mentioned practical anywhere until i dug deep into the nremt website... do i have to take a practical at the pearson vue testing center? or did my final practical of my course count towards the nremt practical? i need help becuase i can not figure out where to sign up for a practical or anything... please help, dont want to get that surprise friday that i also have to take the practical.. let me know

The NR doesn't do practical exams at the EMT-B level. That testing should be done at the state level. You will need to check with your state's licensing/certifying agency to find out when/where you need to take the practical exam.

Good luck with you tests!

Ed,

The practical you took at the community college was it. If you didn't pass those stations, you wouldn't have been given the go-ahead to take the NREMT written exam.

I also took my course in FL (Florida Community College at Jacksonville) & the NREMT exam.

Where are you in FL?

When I took my cert tests, we had to do the state written before the practical, and we couldn't do the NREMT that day, because they said we had to have our practicals done BEFORE we took the NREMT, but we had to take a written test first. So a bunch of us got mad, because we had been hoping on taking the NREMT that day, but instead only took the state. Oh well, looks like when I take the NREMT (in a few weeks) I'll have 2 certs :p

okay itook nremt-b and we had practicals! we had to pass the practicals before we took the written. there were basic stations like; airway managment with nasal and oral airways; bvm, and mouth to mask; shock managment, ked, back boarding, splinting, tracting splinting, a trauma and a medical scenario. some where madatory stations and others were optional where you didn't know what we were getting!! it wasn't bad as long as you were confident and knew basically what you were doing.

Oh, ok. I thought you meant you had to do the practicals AGAIN when you did the NREMT. I can do them perfectly on a classmate, or a family member, but as soon as I come to be graded on them, I freeze up. So I was a little scared because I take my NREMT in about a month :p

FYI: National Registry technically does NOT have Basic Level EMT practicals, rather they allow the state mandate such. Although, many presume and assume, since the check off sheets have the NREMT symbol believe it is sanctioned by NREMT. NREMT offers recommended evaluation sheets to schools, states, etc..

The NREMT only have practicals exams at the advanced levels.
