What did you guys do with your NREMT patch? Just wondering, I'm not exactly sure what it's for! haha.

And has anyone purchased any of their additional framing products? The cordova edition looks really cool and my mom is thinking about buying it to hang in the house. Do they send it with a duplicate certificate, or do you have to put yours back in?

I have all my patches, current certs, and expired certs in a binder to keep it all straight and organized.

i have no idea where any of my patches are. if you work and are required to wear patches they should come sewnonto the shirt.

That's what I figured especially since they only send you one patch.

Where I worked before I had to supply the NREMT patch because my employer couldn't order it for me since they were not NREMT certified and you have to have an NREMT number to get a patch.

I think they said they would pay me back for it, but since it was only a few dollars I didn't bother.

I wouldn't mind wearing my NR patch, but I don't want to look like a certain non-specific body cavity cleaning device by being the only one that has two patches on. It's called a uniform for a reason.

You're going to spend money to frame a certificate from a first aid course that doesn't even last as long as nurse's aide training? That's kind of like buying a gold ring to commemorate your 6th grade graduation. Let's keep this in perspective here. Thank your mom for the thought, but tell her to save her money for your college graduation, or the tuition it will take to get you there.

I sold my EMT patch to a guy who had flunked EMT school. He was a really nice guy and he really needed a job. Plus, he gave me five bucks.

By the way, where are these "framing products" anyhow? I don't see them on the NR website.

Our class A uniform requires a Registry patch on left shoulder, and right shoulder EMS patch. Nearly everyone in my state wears a NREMT patch if there is a patch to be worn. One looks funny or odd without it.

We do not have nor want a state patch.

The NR patch has always been fugly. The latest revision is the ugliest ever. With all the rich, artistic heritage of Oklahoma, I'm sure that someone could come up with something that is more pleasing to the eye. Although personally, I say we don't need no stinking patches! :p

It's my mom, she's crazy like that. Her money, so I don't care that much, she'll do what she wants, haha.

Here's the framing - http://img4.imageshack.us/img4/8978/1002681k.jpg

And it's only 80 dollars, so it's really not that much.

I think that she is proud of you, and there is nothing wrong with her wanting to show that by getting a nice frame for your cert.

No no, we can't do that, it's too unprofessional.
