Progress at NPCC leads to expansion
North Platte Community College has had many homes over the years. Growth in its program offerings, technology and number of employees as well as in the demand for particular courses has led NPCC to spread out its operations across two campuses.
Today, health occupations, business and academic transfer-related classes are housed on the South Campus, 601 W. State Farm Road, while heavy technical programs are on the North Campus, 1101 Halligan Drive.
Upon completion of the in-class (didactic) studies, students are required to complete a minimum of 230 hours in a Clinical environment and 200 hours of Field training. Once successful completion of all three training components, the student will then be eligible to sit for the National Registry Paramedic Exam.
Clinical/Field Training components are not part of the 12-week Accelerated Paramedic program at McCook Community College. Clinical/field training placement is the decision of the students. Students are encouraged to use our clinical training facilities and field service affiliations to complete their training. If a student opts to return home to complete their clinical/field training the college will work diligently with their chosen affiliations to attain training contracts, but there are no guarantees these agreements can be secured.
