I became an EMT when I was 16, and I am now a sophomore at my undergraduate college. Most of my EMS experience has been volunteer (aside from a few temporary paid opportunities). I was wondering how I should count my total hours of "prior healthcare experience..."
As for my volunteer hours:
Can I count the total number of hours I was on duty? Or can I only count the hours that I was actually interacting with PTs? For my paid hours:
If I was paid for a certain number of hours as an EMT, can I count all of those hours towards the HCE requirement? Or only the hours that I had direct patient contact?
Thanks for helping out guys! -Steve from NJ
