Nebraska EMR, EMT, AEMT, and Paramedic Certification Application - PDF applications to become licensed in Nebraska.
Nebraska, like many states require all EMR, EMT, AEMT, and Paramedic licensure applicants to take and pass the NREMT exam (National Registry Exam for EMTs). This exam will certify you nationally as an NREMT registered EMR, EMT AEMT or Paramedic. The NREMT exam is currently being delivered via computer at authorized testing centers only. The EMT candidate will be seated at a computer station and questions will be given one at a time. The EMR, EMT and Paramedic exams have no set number of questions on the NREMT exam anymore as the exam is adaptive and changes depending on each test takers ability. You can be certain that the exam will contain at least 70 questions and no more than 150 questions.
Good preparation for the NREMT exam can be found here on EMT National Training where you can access over three thousand five hundred EMR, EMT, AEMT and Paramedic practice questions. You can use our tests to study for your National Registry Exam because along with the correct answers to every question we give you the rationale behind the answer. You get a detailed explanation of why a particular answer is correct and not just whether you were wrong or right. Each exam is kept in the database and your scores logged so you can review past exams at any time.
