MountainView Hospital officially announces the establishment of the MountainView Hospital Paramedic Institute.
MountainView Hospital is the first hospital in Las Vegas as well as the HCA Healthcare enterprise to offer an extensive educational and training program to prehospital professionals throughout the Las Vegas Valley.
MountainView Hospital is currently the only hospital in Las Vegas as well as the HCA Healthcare enterprise to offer an extensive educational and training program for prehospital professionals throughout the Las Vegas Valley. The program has also been approved, recognized, and given provisional post-secondary licensure from the state of Nevada. Full accreditation will be given to the Institute upon successful completion of the first cohort.
The MountainView Hospital Paramedic Institute has been issued a Letter of Review by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP). This letter is NOT a CAAHEP accreditation status, it is a status signifying that a program seeking initial accreditation has demonstrated sufficient compliance with the accreditation standards through the Letter of Review Self Study Report (LSSR) and other documentation. Letter of Review is recognized by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) for eligibility to take the NREMT's Paramedic credentialing examination(s). However, it is NOT a guarantee of eventual accreditation.
The inaugural cohort of paramedic provider students will undergo a 12-month program that involves a stringent didactic regimen and hands-on clinical immersion. MountainView Hospital is partnering with local Fire Departments and private EMS transport agencies in creation of the program. Students attending the Institute will be sponsored by each agency.
There are no graduates from MVHPI in the 2020 reporting year.
Cohort 3 is scheduled to begin on September 12, 2022.
Both cohorts are scheduled to run for 49 consecutive weeks. The start or end date of either Cohort may change at the direction of the Program Director. All students enrolled in Cohort 2 or 3 will be notified of any changes as the need arises. This policy can also be found in the amendment section of the student catalog.
