The University of San Francisco, School of Nursing and Health Professions, is one of the few universities in the Bay area that offers an EMT training program. The program emphasizes personal and professional growth while providing a service that respects and protects the dignity of others. We have proven to stand apart from other EMT programs because we incorporate the USF mission, vision and values and strive to develop prehospital care persons that are professionally aware and active global citizens.

USF’s Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) program uses problem-based learning to provide students with didactic skills and professional competencies needed to take the National Registry Emergency Medical Technician written and practical exams (NREMT) for certification as an EMT (96% first-time pass rate).

We offer unique campus resources, such as simulation labs, an ambulance, interdisciplinary collaboration with other USF programs, acreage and citywide resources. Here, student can be seen training with the USF campus ambulance.


Learning Outcome: U.S. Department of Transportation’s EMT-BASIC National Standard Curriculum, DOT HS 811 077A, January 2009, which adheres to the California Code of Regulations, Title 22, Division 9, Chapter 2: Emergency Medical Technician standard curriculum.
