Well, I was gonna post a link to ours, but I'm too new here and I'm not allowed...I'll be back later
Well since It doesn't want to allow me to post a link, if you go to google and search "Idaho Scope of Practice for EMT" you will see the website/PDF:
"Table of Contents - Department of Administration, Idaho"
Indiana EMS Information
Training and Certification: http://www.in.gov/legislative/iac/T08360/A00040.PDF
IDHS EMS: http://www.in.gov/dhs/3525.htm
Good Article: http://www.emttrainings.com/emt-training-indiana/
In Indiana, as I am sure in most other places, our “Scope of Practice” varies according to a given Medical Director’s approved protocols. In many cases, local protocols allow for less of a Scope than what the State allows.
Had another link for Indiana;
Anyone have any specific changes with the new Advance EMT scope that the NREMT is switching over to? In Arizona they've added SVN's and CPAP to ours, plus a couple of other small things I can't think of (I'd have to talk to my friend who took one of the classes).
This is a little broad, and only if your transitioning.
I don’t have the circ. for the entire class right at hand.
Would a mod maybe be able to go through and update the first post with the links that have been shared?
Here are the scopes for some Canadian provinces. Note most provinces are based on the National Occupational Competency Profile with only minor (or no) changes. (http://paramedic.ca/nocp/) There are exceptions however, such as Alberta, which maintain their own detailed and separate scopes. If in doubt or unable to find the detail you want, you can be pretty confident that the NOCP is correct.
Saskatchewan: http://www.health.gov.sk.ca/ems-protocol-manual (Select "Scope of Practice" on the index.)
Ontario: http://www.ontarioparamedic.ca/index.php/paramedics/levels-and-scope-of-practice (Best I could find.)
Quebec: Unable to find. Refer to NOCP. (http://paramedic.ca/nocp/)
New Brunswick: Follows NOCP. (http://paramedic.ca/nocp/)
Nova Scotia: http://www.gov.ns.ca/health/ehs/paramedics/policies.asp (Under "6000 Essential Competencies")
PEI: Unable to find. Refer to NOCP. (http://paramedic.ca/nocp/)
Newfoundland: Unable to find. Refer to NOCP. (http://paramedic.ca/nocp/)
Yep, when I get back to a computer.
Missouri does not have a state regulated scope of practice...it is determined by your medical director.
New Hampshire patient care protocols
Can we have an updated link for the Scope of Practice for the state of Georgia? The link listed says no page found. :huh:
Doesn't this depend on your EMS system that you work for....
In a way, yes. But most states have a scope of practice that covers everything an EMT or medic is legally allowed to do
i hope i don't get shot.
I'm beginning to understand why people can't come to NY and work start work if they're a NREMT. Setting NYC protocol aside, NY state protocol are extensive and very specific. Getting down to NYC is craziness.

It's gotta vary because EMT's in our FD can IO, push narcan, D50, Cpap, even call someone DOA. I think we only have one EMT left though, everyone else is a Paramedic..
You're in texas, where the medical director can set protocols as they see fit. There's no state scope here
Vermont protocols are on VT EMS web site. I can't post links yet
I know this thread seems to be focused on the American side, however the scope of practice for New Brunswick, Canada can be found on the PANB website (paramedic association of NB), Would post a link if able
The link for Georgia is off. Not sure if it's already been posted but here is the one for Georgia.
Separate names with a comma.
