ROCHESTER — Rochester Community and Technical College is launching a new program this summer for registered nurses who want to switch gears and become emergency medical technicians.

The RN to EMT Bridge course is a new, hybrid program that starts May 30 and continues into August. The course involves weekly Zoom meetings and on-campus skill training.

In the course announcement, RCTC said the course is designed to help health care professionals translate their in-hospital skills to an out-of-hospital setting as EMTs.

Course registration is $500, and the registration deadline is May 25.

More information can be found on RCTC's website.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
