Help create and empower the next generation of life-saving paramedics

It has been said that "education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today." As President of this year's Paramedic Student Association, I have seen these revolutionary words come true. The work and intensive studies that we have been through as paramedic students and interns have whittled away a fifth of our original class; they've reduced us to tears of stress; they've put us through  many sleepless nights and coffee-filled days; but most of all, they've pushed us to be some of the best paramedics we can be.


Until now, we've not needed support beyond comfort and food (quite often in that order). However, as we approach our testing season and the beginnings of our field internships, wherein we run calls with a full-time paramedic mentor in the community at large, we need your help.

Any amount you can give will be a huge boon to our class, so that we may continue on our journey of learning and saving lives.

Please, join us in overcoming the challenges we face today by training the paramedics of tomorrow.

Who are we?

We are lifesavers and psychiatrists; cardiologists and internists. We see you at your worst, and help pick you up. We can lift when you can't stand; we can hold when you are scared. We are the liaison between circumstance and fate; we are paramedics. 


As future paramedics, we will serve many functions. However, we will not be able to help our future neighbors and communities if we are denied the privilege to obtain our certifications and licenses. Unfortunately, to afford these examinations, our class needs well over $10,000.


As we are all full-time students by necessity, and well aware that the career choice we have made is one for duty, not pay, we very humbly thank you for whatever you are able to give to help us reach our goal.

What will we do with the funds?


The entirety of the funds we raise will go towards supporting the fees and costs associated with the tests, certifications, and licenses we need to be paramedics.



When will we use the funds?

Our course lasts until 17th December, 2016. We have a few of our examinations during our class schedule before that date; the other tests fall soon thereafter. Again, for a student to be employed as a licensed paramedic, they must gain their Kansas State License and their National Registry Certification as a paramedic.


                                                                                       


Where and how will we use the funds?

The practical exams for most students, to obtain their Kansas State License, will take place at Johnson County Community College. The written test, for the National Registry Certification, is a computerized exam that takes place at an approved testing location of the student's individual choosing. There are several of these locations across the Kansas City Metro area, as well as in Lawrence and Topeka.

The funds we raise will be deposited into an account reserved solely for use by the Paramedic Student Association, and through this fund, the students in the paramedic class.
